“Where is the Legal Rights of Mother Earth?”

October 22nd, 2015

Interview with Tom B.K. Goldtooth, Executive Director of the Indigenous Environmental Network.  He's being given the Gandhi Peace Award in New Haven on Oct. 30, 2015 in New Haven, CT.  We talk about efforts of indigenous people to get their rights respected in the critical Paris climate that will be made this December. We go into his efforts at Copenhagen and Cancun, some of which resulted in the authorities excluding him from meeting hall.

He tells about the group he heads and how it came to be.  We go a bit into his personal background from "res kid" to international figure.  
Tom explains his rejection of the concept of human "dominion" on the earth and his spiritual/philosophical ideas about Mother Earth and the natural world.
