What can Indigenous Cultures Teach the Broader Public about Coping with the Climate Crisis?
October 28 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm
Kari Marie Norgaard will share her learnings from nearly two decades of working with the Karuk tribe in Northern California’s Klamath Siskiyou region. Her new book, Salmon and Acorns Feed Our People: Colonialism, Nature and Social Action, describes the relevance of Indigenous fire science, and ethics of responsibilities for the broader public at this moment in time. What can we learn from these experiences? How can Karuk worldviews and experience of resisting colonialism and capitalism help move the broader public forward through climate trauma that challenges our self-identity, destabilizes our western way of life, and restrains us from real action on Climate Change? Are we open to a new narrative that could serve us better?
