Solidarity with Indigenous Communities Plenary at the 2015 Parliament of the World's Religions

Indigenous Task Forces

At the 2015 Parliament of the World's Religions held in Salt Lake City, Utah, Indigenous voices from around the world speak with wisdom and deep concern for right relationships and the preservation of all life on Mother Earth. This event builds upon the momentum of the Assembly of Indigenous Peoples at the 2009 Melbourne Parliament. A declaration issued at the plenary will serve as a guiding document for the interfaith movement. 

Speakers and performers include Chief Arvol Lookinghorse, Chief Oren Lyons, Wande Abimbola, Arnold Thomas, Dr. Rangimarie Turuki Rose Pere, Inija Trinkuniene, Grandmother Flordemayo, Iriama Margaret Lokawua, Stephen Newcomb, Ta'Kaiya Blaney, Dr. Wilson Aronilith Jr, and Iyekiyapiwin Darlene St. Clare
