Hello Honorites!

20190115160246783_1.jpg

Join Dr. Jason Corwin (Seneca Nation) for the screening of the documentary Defending Ohi:yo’ as well as other short videos highlighting Seneca environmental topics.  Discussion will cover the vital importance of media production by Indigenous people.

In early 2018, while finishing editing a feature length documentary about opposition to the Dakota Access and Northern Access Pipelines entitled “Denying Access:  NoDAPL to NoNAPL, he and other Senecas found out about a proposal to process fracking waste water and discharging it into the headwaters of the Alleghany River.  That River, named Ohi:yo’ in Seneca, flows through the heart of their territory.

Jason Corwin is Executive Director of Seneca Media and Communications Center–a department of the Seneca Nation.  He holds a PhD in Natural Resources from Cornell University and has worked extensively as a community based media and environmental educator.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Penny Bogardus at pbogardus@ithaca.edu or (607) 274-1056.. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.

Partners in the Parks is an outdoor experiential learning program in cooperation with the National Collegiate Honors Council. Nine projects at national parks across the country offer unique opportunities for collegiate honors students and faculty to visit areas of the American landscape noted for their beauty, significance, and lasting value.

Seminars led by university faculty and park personnel include historic, scientific, cultural, and other important features unique to a given park. Projects also take advantage of exciting recreational opportunities to broaden participants’ understanding of the overall value of national parks to our country and its citizens.

Jackie is a sophomore, Documentary Productions major and she will be going to the Golden Gate National Park! Jackie states, “I’m looking forward to seeing California for the first time, meeting and engaging with the other students on the trip, and blogging the experience!” 

Congrats to Jackie!
