Please join us for a special guest lecture as part of the Environmental Humanities-Indigenous Studies Energy & Environment Cluster Search. Professor Chie Sakakibara, from Oberlin College, will give her talk: “Singing for the Whales: Climate Change and Indigenous Resilience in Arctic Alaska”
For the Iñupiat communities, scientific knowledge, motivation to protect the environment, and the capacity to mobilize are essential for coexistence with whales. What it means to be a person or community member is intertwined inextricably with diverse connections to whaling and whale caretaking. Ceremony and music are coupled with whale ecology, global climate change and intimate relationships with whales.
