Season 3 Episode 2: In this episode we have Dr. Jessica Hernandez, an Indigenous scholar, scientist, and community advocate based in the Pacific Northwest. She discusses with us the importance of indigenizing environmental science to center Indigenous voices and knowledge. We also discuss the importance of mutual aid for Indigenous communities, and the harm that “helicopter research” in communities of color can cause. Listen to learn more about Dr. Jessica’s work and the two collectives she co-runs, Earth Daughters and Pina Soul, SPC.
