As Obama accepts his Nobel peace prize, Native Americans, Alaska Natives,
and First Nations Peoples will speak out about the US energy industry’s war
on indigenous lands and livelihoods. The delegation will deliver a clear
message to Obama and tell him that peace begins with just energy policies
that respect human rights and the environment.
Representatives from communities directly impacted by fossil fuel
development, nuclear energy expansion, and false solutions to the climate
crisis will speak out on the importance of indigenous rights and knowledge
as foundational for addressing climate change.
