Indigenous Approaches To Climate Change


Lawrence, Kan. – Scientists, politicians and skeptics are all talking about climate change. But a professor at Haskell Indian Nations University says some voices have been left out of the debate. Daniel Wildcat's book Red Alert! Saving the Planet with Indigenous Knowledge addresses the issue of how indigenous peoples around the world are being forced to deal with a changing ecosystem. He recently spoke with KPR's Laura Lorson.

Daniel Wildcat is co-director of the Haskell Environmental Research Studies Center. He will be talking about his book Red Alert at the Plaza branch of the Kansas City Public Library tonight (April 21, 2010) at 7pm.
