Episode 4: Enriching Conservation With Identity-Based Wisdom

September 17, 2019

Conservation leader Brett Ramey, member of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, joins Sarah Smarsh to discuss environmental (in)justice and how our identities can shape the preservation of the planet. Ramey is an educator and organizer working at the intersections of environmental, cultural, and community health. His work is grounded in reclaiming and upholding knowledge systems that honor relationships and responsibilities to lands and waters. He serves as director of the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington, a community of young people who aim to transform the face, practice, and future of conservation. Learn more at TheHomecomers.org and follow the show on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.
