Chico Vive: The Legacy of Chico Mendes and the Global Grassroots Environmental Movement
April 4 – 6, 2014
This international environmental conference at American University in Washington D.C. will feature Australian guest speaker, Dr Joan Hendriks, and the premiere screening of a film Dreaming On: The Story of the Quandamooka People. Dr. “Aunty” Joan is a Ngugi woman of one of the three clan groups of the Quandamooka people of Moreton Bay in Brisbane. The Quandamooka’s successful struggle for recognition of their traditional lands sets an example for environmental and Indigenous movements around the world. She has been a consistent advocate for the rights and education of Indigenous people, and has presented workshops locally and internationally including at the United Nations Indigenous Peoples Forum in 2004.
The documentary film Dreaming On: The Story of the Quandamooka People, which will premiere during the conference, tells the story of this aboriginal island community’s determination to retain their land and culture.
