On Tuesday 21 February 2017 , Sydney Ideas presents a special public lecture by Dr. Kyle Powys Whyte, which will discuss Dr. Whyte’s work on climate and environmental justice and writings on the #No DAPL movement.
In the lead-up to the event, I spoke to Dr. Whyte about his research on the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). I am incredibly honoured to have this opportunity, not just because Kyle has published invaluable research on the DAPL, but because over the past year I have followed the case and Kyle’s research closely.
The case of the DAPL is a familiar story, one which marks the continued dispossession and oppression of First Nations people in resource development decisions.
