If you cannot make it at that time, he will be available from 12:00pm to 2:00pm in Collis in the lounge to talk with students if you are interested in talking with him about his work in addressing environmental issues and American Indian Communities. His work spans across several academic disciplines including cultural, governmental, philosophical scientific, or sustainability related issues.
