Join Education & Outreach Coordinator, Casey Bries, in reviewing Red Alert!: Saving the Planet with Indigenous Knowledge in which Daniel R. Wildcat examines the use of Indigenous knowledge to inspire solutions to combating climate change. This month’s discussion will focus on the following prompts: 1) What forms does knowledge take? 2) How do power structures inform which forms of knowledge are accepted and utilized in public land management decisions? 3) How can environmentalism elevate Indigenous knowledge to address issues like climate change and promote continued generations of land stewardship? Outdoors for All Reading & Discussion Series: Celebrate diversity in the outdoors and transform your perspective through environment-focused literary works by, for, and about people of historically excluded identities. Each month, OSMP staff will choose a book that supports deeper understanding of how environmental policy and land management can be used as tools to drive social change. We will gather virtually the fourth Monday of each month to discuss the reading and share ideas for creating community and building a more equitable and resilient future for our public lands. Participants are encouraged to read each month’s book, but all are welcome to join the discussion. All titles will be available as free-to-access e-books through Boulder Public Library (boulderlibrary.org). SHOP LOCAL! Prefer a hardcopy? Order or pick it up from Boulder Bookstore.
