Indigenous women’s leadership

Envisioning an indigenous treaty
WithYulia Maleta

Indigenous and non-Indigenous women participants, in my research study, outline their Indigenous advocacy, in relation to social, environmental and feminist campaigning. Women participants’ sustainable change ethos is, thus, linked to goals for social and gender justice, showing how they care about other women and diverse issues. Indigenous women’s leadership, and that of other women, who support Indigenous women’s rights/equity, informs my Act’s conceptual development of an Indigenous Treaty. Indigenous women and that of my six groups, are key leaders for a sociopolitical (Republican) sustainable (environmentalist) change. Indigenous women are passionate about a renewables future, rather than the extrapolation of the natural environment. My Republican change, akin to a Bill of Rights Act, supports this vision.
