Lakota Cheyenne Mole Roben White hosts this all-Native Indigenous Peoples Day show, including:

 

Land-based Healing: Judy BlueHorse Skelton (Nez Perce/Cherokee), Assistant Professor at Portland State University (PSU) and Emma Johnson (Cowlitz), Senior Instructor at Portland State University, both in the Indigenous Nations Studies Department discuss their collaborative work in Indigenous Traditional Ecological and Cultural Knowledge (ITECK), which provides a counterpoint to the western worldview, which places humans separate from Mother Earth. They discuss PSU’s new ITECK certificate, a place-based and community-based curriculum that centers our plant-based relatives, decolonizes academia, supports tribal food sovereignty, and offers people a chance to better connect with the landscape they call home.  The panel is excerpted from WSU's April 2023 SJCON conference.

 

Intersections: Excerpts from a plenary panel from WSU’s April 2023 SJCON conference exploring the intersections of Native Sovereignty, Decolonization, Divestment, Reparations, and Environmental Justice: Constructing Coalitions at the Intersections. Facilitated by Roben White, the panel features Robert Collin, retired law professor, writer, and environmental justice activist; Rachel Cushman, Chinook; member, Chinook Indian Nation Council; Kent Ford, co-founder, Portland Chapter of the Black Panther Party; and Cathy Sampson-Kruse, Waluulapum Band, Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.
