Learning From Indigenous Leadership for Regenerative Economies
Indigenous Peoples are at the frontlines of protecting the planet while also suffering the highest rates of environmental racism. In response, Indigenous peoples have also been at the forefront of innovative solutions for addressing social and environmental issues. In Alaska, where communities are experiencing the negative effects of climate change at a far higher rate than the lower 48 states, Native leaders are finding unique ways to address this crisis through business solutions. Alexis Bunten (Unangan/Yupik), Dune Lankard (Eyak Athabaskan) and Alana Peterson (Tlingit) engage in a fascinating discussion about the future of Native-led regenerative enterprise, what non-Native business leaders can learn from organizational practices rooted in Indigenous values, and what they can do to support this growing network of regenerative Indigenous businesses.
