Our guest this week is Tracey Osborne, Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor in the School of Geog­ra­phy and Devel­op­ment at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ari­zona. Tracey’s research focus­es on the polit­i­cal ecol­o­gy of cli­mate change mit­i­ga­tion in trop­i­cal forests, par­tic­u­lar­ly the role of Indige­nous Peo­ples, and ques­tions of cli­mate jus­tice. Tracey found­ed and directs the Cli­mate Alliance Map­ping Project, which is a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort between aca­d­e­mics, envi­ron­men­tal NGOs, and Indige­nous orga­ni­za­tions work­ing for a social­ly-just response to cli­mate change through research, maps and dig­i­tal stories.

In the sec­ond por­tion of the show, we include a pre-record­ed audio seg­ment fea­tur­ing five Indige­nous wom­en’s per­son­al sto­ries of strug­gle, which were relayed at the Inter-Amer­i­can Com­mis­sion on Human Rights in Jamaica ear­li­er this month. Speak­ers include: Sean­na Howard, Uni­ver­si­ty of Ari­zona Indige­nous Peo­ples Law and Pol­i­cy Cen­ter; Ofe­lia Rivas (Tohono O’od­ham); Casey Camp Horinek, Pon­ca Nation of Okla­homa and Pon­ca Trib­al Coun­cil­woman; Leoy­la Cow­boy, Dine’ (Nava­jo); and Michelle Cook, Dine’ (Nava­jo). (Spe­cial thanks to Bren­da Nor­rell, Pub­lish­er, Cen­sored News for pro­vid­ing us with the audio. See her arti­cle for more infor­ma­tion and background.
