“We have to take care of all of creation because it is us.”
That’s Simone Senogles, who was arrested earlier this week for protesting Line 3, a pipeline expansion proposed by Enbridge to bring nearly a million barrels of tar sands per day from Alberta, Canada to Superior, Wisconsin.
Today, Simone and Casey Camp-Horinek join us on the show for a powerful discussion of Indigenous justice and the rights of nature—a philosophy that recognizes the right of all ecosystems and living things to exist and flourish.
Simone Senogles is Anishinaabe from the Red Lake Nation in Northern Minnesota. She is a member of the leadership team at the Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN), where she has worked for the last twenty years. Her programmatic work is focused on indigenous women’s leadership and the importance of lifting up their work and power.
Casey Camp-Horinek is a longtime activist, environmentalist, actress, and author. She is an environmental ambassador, elder, and hereditary drumkeeper of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma.
