This workshop will take participants on a journey of unpacking colonialism in the Americas with an emphasis on environmental terrorism and its detrimental impacts on Indigenous lands and bodies in the Southwest region of the United States. We will delve into the impacts of coal/uranium mining, gas and oil extraction and the nuclear energy/weapon industry. Dr. Castro will further discuss the correlations between the Missing & Murdered Indigenous Relatives (MMIR) movement and environmental violence, bringing participants to an understanding of the vital role Indigenous people, specifically Indigenous women, play in the earth and climate justice movement.
