About the event

Charlie Toledo (Towa), Executive Director of Suscol Intertribal Council in Napa, will share some Indigenous perspectives on fire season that are crucial for settler climate activists to know.

The 2017 Northern California wildfires, which caused the most expensive amount of damage by wildfires in California to that date, started in Napa. In recent years, wildfires have caused record-setting damage in Canada, Australia, Europe, Hawai’i, and all over the world.

The event will help answer questions such as:

  • What is cultural burning? How is it good for the land and our climate?
  • How has the outlawing of cultural burns under colonialism contributed to the climate crisis?
  • What can settler climate activists do to support Indigenous cultural burners, here and abroad?

This event is organized by S. Louie and moderated by Alma Soongi Beck, Co-Chairs of the Climate Justice Team of Climate Reality Bay Area, and co-sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of the Climate Reality Project.
