[Event] A Meeting of Sacred Waters 2024!

(November 29, 2023) Now accepting proposals to present! A Meeting of Sacred Waters is a gathering place for sharing Indigenous worldviews, values and perspectives to reclaim the health of the world’s water sources. Through the experiences of Indigenous Peoples from the US and abroad, this global exchange explores solutions to restore balance for the wellbeing of humanity and the environment.


We are now accepting session proposals for the event!

Red Star invites Indigenous people representing Tribal Nations, organizations and communities to join our network and participate in this important conversation.  A Meeting of Sacred Waters offers a unique opportunity to share your experience, skills and knowledge with other thought-leaders from across the Pacific.

Proposals are due December 22, 2023 at 5:00pm PST.

 Join us for a conversation about the health and healing of our ancestral waters.

This year’s gathering will be held on the traditional homelands of Isleta Pueblo.  We acknowledge the sacred waters and lands throughout the Rio Grande River Basin an all Indigenous Peoples with ancestral ties to the basin on both sides of the U.S. and Mexico border.

A Meeting of Sacred Waters aims to create connections, build relationships and ignite new ideas for healing our ancestral waters. We will:

  • Highlight the interconnectedness between the wellbeing of humanity and the environment.
  • Share examples of Indigenous-led guardianship, stewardship and management practices.
  • Provide a space to engage, exchange and explore new ideas based on Indigenous knowledge systems.
  • Explore pathways to heal our ancestral waters through Indigenous-led systems change. 

We welcome all those who envision a sustainable future, including leaders and representatives from Indigenous Nations and communities; Non-Governmental Organizations; local, state, regional, national and international governments; universities and research institutions; businesses and social enterprises; students; and others.
