Dr. Kurt Russo, a representative from the Lummi Nation, will share the Lummi Nation’s initiatives to protect and care for the Southern Resident Killer Whales (Sk’aliCh’elh) of the Salish Sea. Dr. Russo will present an indigenous-led approach to environmental conservation that encourages the transformation of academic inquiry and scientific decision-making to methods that foreground Indigenous ways of knowing.

The seminar will be held next Thursday, January 16th at 12 noon in the EMU Diamond Lake Room.  Vegetarian soup, pizza, and coffee will be served. See you there!
