Native American Living Earth Symposium

LIVE WEBCAST EVENT, SATURDAY 1:30 - 4pm EST.  


WASHINGTON - On Saturday, Aug. 7, at 11 a.m. in the Rasmuson Theater, Mohawk elder Tom Porter will provide a keynote address on the community he founded in the Mohawk Valley in New York, known as Kanatsiohareke, or “place of the clean pot,” with the goal of living self-sufficiently, in accordance with Mohawk spiritual beliefs. He will detail how they are learning to blend environmentally supportive energy and farming technologies with Native traditions. The community practices organic vegetable farming, operates a bed-and-breakfast and a crafts store. At 1:30 p.m. in the Rasmuson Theater, “Living Earth/Living Waters: A Symposium” will feature a discussion on water, wind and salmon with scientists, leaders and innovators offering thought-provoking presentations on the latest scientific research on the biosphere and the threats and opportunities people face on the road to sustainability. Speakers include Billy Frank Jr. (Nisqually), Nancy Maynard, Alberto Mellado Moreno (Comćaac Nation of Mexico) and Daniel Wildcat (Yuchi member of the Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma). Jose Barreiro (Taino) will moderate. This event will be webcast live here on Black Radio Network. 

 Native cultures have long recognized and celebrated the interrelatedness of all life on Earth. As we tackle today’s increasingly complex environmental issues, this wisdom is more important than ever. Native and non-Native scientists, leaders, and innovators offer rich and thought-provoking presentations featuring the latest research on the biosphere, with emphasis on Earth’s waters and how their processes and problems affect the global system. Join us for a timely, inspiring exploration of the challenges, opportunities, and obstacles we face on the road to sustainability.

Speakers include:
Dr. Nancy Maynard, senior research scientist at NASA and manager of NASA’s Tribal College and University Project.
Alberto Mellado Moreno, a member of the Comcáac Nation of Mexico and the founder of a sustainable indigenous aquaculture project
Dr. Daniel Wildcat (Yuchi member of the Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma), Director of the Haskell Environmental Research Studies Center, author, and professor at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas.
Ma’Ko’Quah Abigail Jones (Prairie Band Potawatomi), student and climate change researcher, Haskell Indian Nations University
Jose Barreiro (Taino), NMAI Assistant Director for Research, will moderate the symposium.
