Salmon are the lifeblood for many Pacific Northwest Indigenous communities. The health of salmon is the health of the ecosystem. As the climate crisis becomes more apparent, tribal communities are adapting and managing the land and water that have sustained them for centuries. What can media coverage of Indigenous communities explain about our vital connections to the places where we live and our role in about a planet out of balance.
Watch and listen as Mark Trahant, Editor, Indian Country Today, and Beth Piatote, Associate Professor, UC Berkeley, discuss traditional knowledge in a Western world, the role of media in making Indian Country visible, and if it's possible to explain another way to look at the world in a climate crisis.
