Where Have All the Good Fires Gone? An Indigenous Perspective on the Fire Relationship

October 15 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm

 

Join the Humanities Studio at Pomona College on Thurs, Oct 15, for “Where Have All the Good Fires Gone? An Indigenous Perspective on the Fire Relationship” with Michael Connolly Miskwish (Kumeyaay) and Pomona’s own Char Miller.
We’re often told that today’s Southern California residents have a lot to learn about living in this wildfire-prone landscape from the area’s Native Nations. What exactly are those lessons? Join San Diego State lecturer in American Indian Studies Michael Connolly Miskwish (Kumeyaay) and Pomona College Professor of Environmental Analysis Char Miller for a rich discussion of historical fire usage by California tribes; the Kumeyaah’s reintroduction of managed fire on its Campo; and the carrying capacity of this fire-prone terrain—among many other related topics.
The event is free and open to the public.
