Join Trail Runner for a discussion with Run To: Be Visible co-directors Jordan Marie Daniels and Devin Whetstone in conversation with Dr. Lydia Jennings about their film on Tuesday, October 26th at 5 pm MST.
Lydia Jennings is a member of the Huichol (Wixaritari) and Pascua Yaqui (Yoeme) Nations and holds a doctorate in soil microbiology. Her work is dedicated to environmental science and the essential role of Indigenous communities in these spaces. Her hope is to create more inclusive academic and environmental landscapes. In place of her graduation, which was canceled as a result of the pandemic, Lydia instead celebrated by running 50 miles in honor of the Indigenous scientists and knowledge keepers who came before her. It’s a run to honor the past and present while looking towards the future.
Our discussion will take place live on Zoom with an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and engage with the film’s creators. Register for the event with the form below.
