Through her work with the Environmental Justice movement, Eriel has been deeply involved in social justice and anti-oppression trainings/workshops, conference facilitation, and public speaking. These have been central to developing strategy and drafting numerous declarations including the Anchorage Declaration, Keep It In The Ground Declaration, and organizing the internationally renowned Tar Sands Healing Walk. Eriel's organizing has pulled together powerful social movement vehicles in an intersectional movement framework that has resulted in the emergence of one of the most powerful visible Keep it in the Ground campaigns on the planet, the indigenous tar sands campaign. With her Nation and relatives in the Athabasca, Peace River, and Cold lake region, they have shone a light on the most controversial fossil fuel battlegrounds and on the environmental racism of the Canadian government and the oil sands sector. Presently Eriel is the driving force of Indigenous Climate Action, a burgeoning network to support Indigenous Climate Leadership.
