About this Declaration

The Shift Network in partnership with SEED Institute created this Declaration of Commitment to Indigenous Peoples. We believe addressing the legacy of collective wounding with Indigenous peoples is critical for creating a context of oneness and mutual respect among all humanity and for helping to heal our relationship with the Earth. James O’Dea, a global leader in social healing, is the primary author of the declaration with input from Stephen Dinan, Glenn Aparicio Parry, Claudia Sobrevila and Philip Hellmich.

We invite you to join us by signing the declaration and sharing it in your community. We also invite you to take action in ways meaningful to Indigenous peoples, the Earth and yourself.
