SCHOLARLY SCOOP: Eco-Struggles and Successes in Indian Country

Friday, February 1, 10:30 am

The talk focuses on recent and ongoing environmental justice conflicts in Indian Country, though indigenous struggles and resistance span centuries. Cases facing Native communities in the Great Lakes region form the main context before connecting us with communities downriver in the Louisiana bayous and Gulf of Mexico. We are intimately tied to others in the Mississippi River watershed even if we may be unaware of the connections. Interconnectedness permeates an indigenous worldview and opens dialogue about responsibilities we all share to care for the planet and people.

C. Holly Denning, M.A. (ABD), is Senior Lecturer at UW-Whitewater in the Department of Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology.
