Episode 6 - Energy is Power: Decolonizing Energy Production on Indigenous Lands in the West

Tee Pee - Grand Canyon

In our sixth, and final, episode of the rural energy series, we talk to organizers, entrepreneurs, and scholars to understand how energy has shaped rural western reservations and how tribal nations are taking back power, both figuratively and literally.

Our guest for this episode are Jessica Keetso, organizer at Tó Nizhóní Ání, Chéri Smith, founder of Indigenized Energy Initiative, and Kathie Brosemer, a PhD candidate and Environmental Program Manager for the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians.
