Learn about 50 Indigenous scientists through a 50-mile run by Dr. Lydia Jennings
Dr. Jennings refers to this as a Running with Purpose Project, but it is about so much more than running. It is about her journey as an Indigenous scholar. It is about the impacts of mining on Indigenous lands and the role of Indigenous communities and knowledge in these places and spaces. It is about raising the voices and identities of existing Indigenous scientists and at the same time paving the way for the Indigenous scholars of the future.
