Dr. Sammy Matsaw

Cultivating alliances will take an earnest and diligent effort of self and community work to undo the historical genocide, trauma, and harm left in the substantial scope and scale of colonialism projects. Storytelling is a way of interpreting the natural landscape and phenomena through metaphors to respecting the sources of life-giving entities aka natural resources. Indigenous Peoples are living in their homelands since time immemorial, however, have been removed in some form or fashion aka erasure. Traditional/Indigenous Knowledge is still practiced today persisting over 500 generations informing a way of knowing to be a part of nature, the land, and waterways aka science. Decolonizing and Indigenous Research Methodologies is the critical lens the scientific enterprise needs to interweave different ways of knowing that inform policy towards real climate change action.
