Dynamic Duo

Citizen investigative journalists Sandy Robson and Dena Jensen receive 2017 Environmental Heroes award from RE Sources.

As an associate scholar of the Center for World Indigenous Studies in Olympia, I find Robson and Jensen both thoughtful and thorough. Sandy’s 2014 article What Would Corporations Do? set the standard for citizen journalism. In my 2016 report Netwar at Cherry Point, I cited Sandy’s research, and placed her great work in context.

Mutual Understanding

From the Makah Museum website:

We invite you to visit us in Neah Bay. In the Makah Spirit of friendship, love, respect, and wishes for good health, we anticipate that we will know each other better and will have increased mutual understanding. It is time that people with different backgrounds and ideas should see into each others’ lives.


Slaying the Dragon

As noted in the Seattle Times and reported in the Vancouver Sun,

The British Columbia provincial government is taking legal and administrative action to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.  At issue is inadequate consultation by developer Kinder Morgan with First Nations. In Washington, the Tulalip Tribes, Suquamish tribe, Swinomish Indian Tribal Community and Lummi Nation have joined to fight the project.
