Tribal Talks: Breaking Boundaries

May 4 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

This event is the last of three sponsored by CWC-Jackson, the WY Humanities Council, the WY Cultural Trust Fund, and the Teton County Library.  The other dates are March 2 and March 23.

Jacki Klancher, CWC’s Professor of Environmental Science and Health and CWC students Aidan Hereford and Antoine Day present “New Voices: from Everest Base Camp to the Continental Divide.”

The CWC student team was comprised of four Indigenous students: Jada Antelope, Aidan Darissa Hereford, Red Thunder Spoonhunter, Antoine Day, and one non-Indigenous first-generation student Ryan Towne. 

The journey was sponsored by Wyoming EPSCOR, Rocky Mountain Alliance for Minority Participation, and the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium.  This team paired with MeteoTracker technology manufacturers to test portable climate sensors. In Spring 2022, a small team traveled to Everest Base Camp to assess the use of these sensors for high-elevation data collection. This talk will describe the rationale behind this effort and how it relates to alpine conditions in Wyoming.

 

The venue will be the Teton Library Auditorium in Jackson, WY. This announcement will be updated as the date grows closer.
