“Selling Mother Earth: Effort by the NY Stock Exchange to Designate Mother Earth as a New Asset Class.” Tiokasin spends the hour talking with Rebecca Adamson — Indigenous Economist, Cherokee and Founder of First Nations Development and First Peoples Worldwide. A leader, activist and ground-breaking Indigenous woman, Rebecca holds a distinct perspective about how Indigenous people’s systems thinking and the value system behind Indigenous economies can be used to catalyze change. Rebecca has won many awards: PBS Change Makers, National Women’s History Recipient, Council on Foundations Scrivner Award for Most Innovative Grant-Maker, John Gardner Civic Leadership Award. She is widely known for her asset-based development strategies and co-authored the award-winning book “The Color of Wealth: The Story Behind the US Racial Wealth Divide.” Rebecca currently serves as Advisor to the Wharton Business School ESG Initiative, Trustee Women’s Media Center and Trustee Bay and Paul Foundations.
