Seventy (70) Indigenous environmental leaders from over twelve First Nations have gathered during North American CELE workshops, sharing innovative methodologies, examples, strategies and tactics to strengthen sovereignty and regenerate traditional knowledge. NACELE participants, from Canada and the United States, comprise Indigenous academics, tribal government members, Indigenous governance officials, and environmental practitioners and activists. They include representatives of Eat Your Heritage, a Guamanian movement for cultural revitalisation through food sovereignty, and, with a regional focus on Northeastern First Nations for NACELE 2015, participants from Mohawk, Cree, Innu, Huron, and Abenaki Nations.
