RAD Storytelling

RAD Voices

This short film features Indigenous voices from coast-to-coast-to-coast sharing their stories and perspectives at the RAD Network’s Spring 2023 gathering, “Envisioning the Indigenous-led Conservation Economy”. Watch the video for a glimpse of the gathering and hear from some of the diverse but aligned voices that are coming together to create our emerging network.

Full Moon Network Gatherings

Throughout 2023, the RAD Network hosted monthly, virtual Full Moon Network Gatherings to deepen relationships, learn from one another and envision pathways forward. We came together around the time of the full moon to connect and reflect on one question or theme.

Our first Full Moon Network Gathering focused on Ethical Space (see video below), followed by others focused on core themes like Spirit and Ceremony. Building on these foundational conversations, later gatherings addressed questions such as, “how will we turn our vision into action together?”.

After each gathering, we shared recordings, key learnings and summary notes in our newsletter. For a recap of previous Full Moon Gatherings, check out our newsletter archive and YouTube recordings. (Recordings include opening words, songs and presentations, but we do not record breakout discussions in order to foster a safe space for dialogue.)

“Our Vision” | webinar RECORDING

On October 27, 2023, we came together to present the RAD Network’s emergent vision, as we launched our website and report, “Envisioning the Indigenous-led Conservation Economy”. Watch the webinar to hear about the context from which the network has emerged and the vision that we’re pursuing together for decolonized conservation finance and Indigenous-led solutions, with insights and stories from our Leadership Circle.

Read the Vision Report and Executive Summary.



The RAD Moccasin Telegraph podcast shares stories and discussions on Indigenous-led solutions and the importance of restoring Indigenous sovereignty and connection to the land.

The first two episodes feature voices from our Leadership Group: David Flood and Steven Nitah. These initial episodes provide some of the key context of where we’ve come from and a glimpse of where we’re headed.

We have an exciting lineup of new podcast episodes in development. Stay tuned!

The RAD Moccasin Telegraph is also on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and iHeart Radio.
