Our project focused on investigating Lakota philosophies of living and applying what we learned to the climate crisis. We conducted archival research and semi-structured interviews with Lakota elders. We came to understand the Lakota people perceive their relationship with nature differently than those who live in the dominant culture. Lakota people perceive everything as a sacred relative. We believe this philosophy of inter-relationship will help mitigate the climate crisis. We shared what we learned through short videos and an audio landscape.
