Join us with Dina Gilio-Whitaker for a conversation on indigenous land rights, environmental justice, and forms of resilience, featuring maps from our collections and a screening of The Penobscot: Ancestral River, Contested Territory.
Dina Gilio-Whitaker (Colville Confederated Tribes descendant) is a renowned scholar, educator, journalist, and author in American Indian studies. In her most recent book As Long As Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice from Colonization to Standing Rock (Beacon Press, 2019), Dina applies her expertise in environmental justice to create a foundation for thinking through what environmental justice policy means in Indian country. The only book of its kind, it stands as a primer for governments and organizations of all kinds who are engaging in environmental justice work with Indigenous peoples.
This talk is part of our Continued Conversations series in conjunction with our current environmental justice exhibition, More or Less in Common: Environment and Justice in the Human Landscape.
To be held in person at the Central Library in Copley Square.
