**/Over 45 Frontline Leaders Will Participate Inside and Outside COP21/*
*Bemidji, MN* - The Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) is taking a 
delegation of over 45 Indigenous frontline leaders from across North 
America to participate inside and outside the 2015 United Nations 
Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris, France. The conference, 
also known at the Conference of Parties 21 (COP21) will run for two 
weeks from November 30th to December 12th, 2015, with the 
intendedobjective of achieving a binding and universal agreement on 
climate, from all the nations of the world.
The Indigenous Environmental Network’s delegation is a diverse group of 
Indigenous spokespeople from across North America who are representing 
various issues and campaigns directly affecting Indian Country, in 
regard to extractive development and community-based solutions to 
climate change. IEN will be joined by  a sister organization called 
Grassroots Global Justice, together forming a 100-person delegation 
titled, “It Takes Roots To Weather the Storm”.
The Indigenous Environmental Network is a registered civil society, 
non-governmental organization with the United Nations and will have 
accredited delegates inside the civil society forum of the climate 
negotiations as official observers. IEN will also have delegates 
participating in a number of “outside” events, actions, and meetings 
happening throughout Paris during the two weeks of the conference.
*It is the intended goal of IEN to influence the climate negotiations 
for the explicit purposes of achieving four core demands from the COP21: *

  * Establish a mandatory and legally-binding agreement to cut carbon
    emissions at the source.
  * Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground by establishing moratoriums on
    future fossil fuel developments.
  * Recognize, respect, and observe the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in
    the climate agreement text.
  * Reject false solutions, which are market-based mechanisms to address
    climate change and support Just Transition economies.

As a means to accomplish this goal, IEN will be performing a series of 
cultural demonstrations and public events throughout Paris to raise 
awareness of critical issues affecting frontline communities. Some of 
which are as follows:

  * Sunrise Ceremony, November 29th,
  * Global Climate Action, November 29th, location TBD
  * Rights of Nature Tribunal, December 4-5, Maison de Metallos
  * Keep It In the Ground & Women's Treaty Press Event, December 6th,
    Bassion De La Villette.
  * Natives in Paris Concert Event, December 10th, "la Halle aux
    Oliviers" at la Bellevilloise
  * Indigenous Water Ceremony, December 11th, location TBD

A critical component of the IEN delegation is the emphasis on Indigenous 
women and youth leadership. The Indigenous Environmental Network is one 
of the founding signatories of the Indigenous Women of the North and 
South – Defend Mother Earth Treaty Compact 2015. This historic document 
will be presented at a press event on December 6th, 2015. IEN will also 
be bringing 13 Lummi youth from the Puget Sound area of the United 
States to encourage in-depth participation by our future leaders and 
generations.
