All My Relations: Prioritizing Relationship with Nature in Wildlife Management

Lydia Parker is Kanienʼkehá꞉ka from the Walker-Mohawk Band of Six Nations of the Grand River. She is also the executive director of Hunters of Color, a racial equity nonprofit working to create equitable opportunities for People of Color to participate in hunting and conservation. Lydia is going to be doing storytelling about elk, traditional ecological knowledge, and relationship with the land. She will also share perspectives as a hunter, and information about the work she is doing through Hunters of Color. Her hope is to inspire intrigue and encouragement as we work to conserve the wild places and animals we hold dear, and to create an outdoor community that is truly for everyone.
