Salmon Lessons: Indigenous knowledge in the news

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 and more apparent, as warming rivers threaten the survival of fish and access to water becomes increasingly contentious, tribal communities have adopted strategies to protect the natural resources that have sustained them for centuries. What can media coverage of Indigenous communities explain about the vital connections to the places where we live and what can be done about a planet out of balance.

Join Mark Trahant, Editor, Indian Country Today, and Beth Piatote, Associate Professor, UC Berkeley, who will 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.
