  5. 5. Brightman, Gotti, Ulturgasheva “In a long history of frontier-centre relations Amazonia and Siberia have been subject to predatory exploitation of a centre.” (Brightman, Gotti and Ulturgasheva 2007: 2) Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  6. 6. Siberia – resource frontiers Brightman, Grotti, Ulturgasheva 2007: 5 Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020

  8. 8. https://www.theguardian.com/global- development/2016/feb/21/sami-people-reindeer-herders- arctic-culture Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  9. 9. Guardian article • “His colleague, Aslak Eira, adds: “The problem is land grabbing. Government expropriates land for roads and tunnels, windfarms and mines. Our land is being eroded by development. Almost half of our winter lands have gone. I fear that in future there will be nowhere left for the reindeer.”” Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  10. 10. Guardian, con’t • “There is an urban, European way of thinking about their activity. Pastoralism is aimed at using barren land, but the law is not set up for the movement of animals in the natural environment and Norwegian laws can criminalise herder activity. The authorities want to manage reindeer as if they were sheep.” Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  11. 11. Dr. Olga Ulturgasheva • Dr. Ulturgasheva is an Indigenous anthropologist at Manchester University: • “Olga Ulturgasheva (PhD; Cambridge) has carried out ethnographic research on childhood and adolescence, narrative and memory, animist and nomadic cosmologies, reindeer herding and hunting, climate change and the latest envrionmental transformations in Siberia and Alaska. Since 2006 she has been engaged in a number of international projects exploring human and non-human personhood, youth resilience, climate change and adaptation patterns in Siberia, American Arctic and Amazonia. She is an author of Narrating the Future in Siberia: Childhood, Adolescence and Autobiography among the Eveny (Berghahn Books 2012) and co-editor of Animism in Rainforest and Tundra: Personhood, Animals, Plants and Things in Contemporary Amazonia and Siberia (Berghahn 2012).” source: https://www.research.manchester.ac.uk/portal/olga.ulturgasheva.html Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  12. 12. Ulturgasheva and Bodenhorn Article: • Flexibility in the context of confronting the specific challenges of climate change in the arctic: “— In the Arctic, the effects of already existing climate changes are constant and require just as constant responses—material and non- material.” (p.3) Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  13. 13. Ulturgasheva and Bodenhorn “The effects of these extreme events are as much a function of politico-economic processes, past and present, as they are of environmental conditions. The extent to which responses are realizable depends on the creativity, ingenuity and determination of people who must cope with the conditions around them. But they also reflect geopolitics—the possibilities as well as the limits that are shaped by global processes. In this case, we examine some of the ways in which Siberia and Alaska share similar ecological conditions and distinct socio-political realities.” (p. 3) Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  14. 14. Ulturgasheva and Bodenhorn • “and we need to be able to imagine an economic model that is not based on infinite growth.” (p.2) • https://www.theguardian.com/news/2019/jun/17/is-time-to-end- our-fixation-with-gdp-and-growth Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  15. 15. Honourable harvest • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz1vgfZ3etE&ab_channel=TEDx Talks Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  16. 16. Honourable Harvest • “The Honorable Harvest, a practice both ancient and urgent, applies to every exchange between people and the Earth. Its protocol is not written down, but if it were, it would look something like this: • Ask permission of the ones whose lives you seek. Abide by the answer. • Never take the first. Never take the last. • Harvest in a way that minimizes harm. • Take only what you need and leave some for others. • Use everything that you take. • Take only that which is given to you. • Share it, as the Earth has shared with you. • Be grateful. • Reciprocate the gift. • Sustain the ones who sustain you, and the Earth will last forever.” Source: Kimmerer 2015, https://www.yesmagazine.org/issue/good- health/2015/11/26/the-honorable-harvest-lessons-from-an-indigenous- tradition-of-giving-thanks/) Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  17. 17. Honourable Harvest • Asking Permission from plants to harvest them • Plants as nonhuman persons with their own forms of self- determination, societies, collective determinations Kimmerer 2013: p. 178 Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  18. 18. In the footsteps of nanabozho • Building on the principles in the previous chapters, in this chapter, Kimmerer asks us what is required to live with care in the lands/waters/atmospheres of Turtle Island – this applies to Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and explores how to come into thoughtful and care-full engagements in homelands across many geographies • Important to query the positionality of who has come to North America and why (remember our discussion of King and Sharpe, and Maia Butler’s use of Edgewidge Danticat’s floating homelands. While Kimmerer has given us much to think with here in this chapter, important to also bring in clear analysis of the difference between position of white settlers (King’s conquistador humanism) and African diasporic peoples forcibly brought to the Caribbean, US, Canada, South America through enslavement. Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  19. 19. In the footsteps of Nanabozho Learning exercise: • Thinking with the story of Nanabozho’s movements across Turtle Island here in this chapter, and with the African diasporic scholarship we have read this term, what reciprocal knowledges of lands/waters/atmospheres can we draw upon to develop relationships to place here that honour Indigenous knowledges both in North America and amongst Indigenous peoples forcibly brought here through enslavement or as refugees displaced by American/European/other imperial forces? What tools do we need to help hold these conversations across Indigenous and diasporic communities? What does it mean to be in reciprocal relation to place if we’ve been forced from our homelands? Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
  20. 20. Final reflection question: Reflecting on the materials shared this week, what is one primary principle that you think would help us move through the crisis of environmental governance we are collectively facing on earth right now? Copyright Dr. Zoe Todd 2020
