More Than A Statistic:
How Indigenous Knowledge can save our Environment and our Politics
James Courage Singer
MACL, Diversity Fellow in Sociology and Ethnic Studies, SLCC
Most conversations around indigenous peoples in the United States tend to be around poverty, alcoholism, or the past. James argues that indigenous knowledge is what breaks through the colonizer's gaze and shows that people of color, and specifically indigenous peoples, are more than just these statistics. He argues that this knowledge and culture offer ways can be used to address environmental degradation and conservation (using examples in places like Standing Rock and Bears Ears) as well as opening alternatives for politics.
