A coalition of Indigenous leaders and activists from North and South America gathered at a press conference on Sunday 12/6/15 to present three key documents on climate change.
The documents, proposed by Indigenous leaders from the Arctic to the Amazon, on Sunday 12/6/15 include:
- the first international treaty between Indigenous women of the Americas,
- a call for international recognition and protection of sacred territories, and
- a declaration cosigned by more than 150 indigenous leaders, environmental, and climate justice organizations that urges world leaders to keep fossil fuels in the ground.
