Below is an excerpt:
The keynote speaker was Samantha Skenandore, a Federal Indian and Tribal Law-experienced attorney for Quarles and an enrolled member of the Ho-Chunk Nation. She supports advocating for laws that protect the land and water.
Skenandore says she joined the collaboration to fix a disconnect between environmentalists to Native nations. She says efforts like these not only protect the environment, but also sustain indigenous cultural heritages.
"It makes sense to be a strategy partner with clean lakes and to analyze and protect, preserve and share our indigenous traditional ecological knowledge with this community, and be more visible, be more vibrant, and just do better by our community" Skenandore said.
