Father and son activist-celebrities Tom B.K. Goldtooth of the Indigenous Environmental Network and Dallas Goldtooth of the 1491’s comedy troupe will explore our responsibility to our environment and peoples, our mandate by the elders to rise up and act, and how we can support Native youth in becoming activists. They will also discuss their wildly different activist styles, their impact on each other, and what they’ve tried to accomplish in Indian Country and beyond. Hosted by Jade Begay (Diné and Tesuque Pueblo), social impact filmmaker and multimedia artist.
