Bedrock Lectures: Jacqueline Keeler

The Real Costs of the Bakkan on Native Communities

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 10:00 AM

In the months leading up to the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Human Rights, Fracking and Climate Change, Spring Creek Project presents the Bedrock Lectures on Human Rights and Climate Change.

This online series features leading scientists, attorneys, writers, community leaders, activists, and artists. Together, the lectures create a chorus of voices and ideas that will invite audiences to imagine how we can build communities and lives in a world where environmental crises quickly become human rights crises.

We will release a new Bedrock Lecture every Wednesday from January 31 to May 30, 2018. The lectures are free and publically available on our website and social media channels. We also encourage you to come to the in-person screening of the lectures at noon each Wednesday in Bexell Hall 412. Each lecture will be about 20 minutes, and we invite you to watch them from your desk, with a group of friends, or at a community gathering.

 

Jacqueline Keeler, author of The Edge of Morning, will share her lecture, "The Real Costs of the Bakkan on Native Communities," on April 11, 2018. 

Jacqueline Keeler is a Diné/Ihanktonwan Dakota writer and contributor to High Country News, The Nation, Yes! Magazine and many other publications. Her book “The Edge of Morning: Native Voices Speak for the Bears Ears” is available from Torrey House Press and the forthcoming “Standing Rock to the Bundy Standoff: Occupation, Native Sovereignty, and the Fight for Sacred Landscapes” will be released next year.
