Abalone Wars: Indigenous Voices from the Coastal Frontlines

The ability to gather intertidal resources has been critically affected by ecosystem disruption. Indigenous leaders share their experiences on the frontlines of the battle to save our coasts while fighting to maintain their cultural connections to these resources.

This presentation took place in the Indigenous Forum at the 2018 National Bioneers Conference. See more from the 2018 Conference.

Featuring Adae Romero-Briones (Cochiti Pueblo), Ilarion Merculieff (Aleut), and, Leah Mata (Northern Chumash)
