The Mellon Environmental Justice and Humanities Speaker Series
JoDe Goudy (Yakama)

What are Right & Respectful Relations? With ourselves? With one another? With our surroundings? How are we to navigate this world with so many significant challenges? JoDe Goudy, the former chairman of the Yakama Nation, advocates for environmental justice and the wellbeing of Native Nations and Peoples with Redthought.org, an educational resource center providing virtual platforms for events, conferences, workshops, and courses. Working for a sustainable future for all generations, he calls for a deeper understanding of cultural history, engaging with the Doctrine of Discovery and ongoing structures of settler colonialism in environmental justice movements today.

Sponsored by the Mellon Initiative for Environmental Humanities, American Studies, English, Environmental Studies, Religion, Anthopology, and the Office of Special Programs.

Free and open to the public.
