How, Then, Shall We Live? Practicing Kinship and Taking the Long View Amidst the Climate Crisis
Dahr Jamail, award winning author on Climate Change, will be speaking at the Majestic, 1027 North Forest Street, in Bellingham Thursday October 12th 7-8:30 pm.
The title of his talk will be ‘How, Then, Shall We Live?: Practicing Kinship and Taking the Long View Amidst the Climate Crisis’, in which he will briefly discuss the gravity of the times we are in from a climate perspective, and then share Indigenous wisdom from ‘We Are the Middle of Forever’ which assists in providing perspective, grounding and healing.
His books will be available at the event, and there will be a book signing following the question and answer period.
Jamail's books include: ‘End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption’ (2019), in which he describes the damages of climate change on Denali (highest mountain in North America), to the destruction of coral reefs, and the melting glaciers of the Bering Sea. He shares research backed knowledge that our Earth is in great danger.
In ‘We are the Middle of Forever: Indigenous Voices from Turtle Island on the Changing Earth’ (2022), Jamail joins with Stan Rushworth (Chiricahua Apache Nation, and teacher of Native American Literature) for Indigenous perspectives on Climate Change. In this book they interview twenty people of North American Indigenous communities and geographic regions who share their knowledge and experience.
The event has a suggested donation of $10 but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Please come!

Masking will depend on the covid situation at that time, and will be provided at the event.
