Ranco speaks to Maine Public about CODE RED exhibit

Darren Ranco, professor of anthropology and chair of Native American Programs at the University of Maine, spoke with Maine Public about the new CODE RED exhibit at the Maine Historical Society in Portland. The exhibit, which Ranco co-curated, explores Indigenous knowledge and environmental stewardship, how humans have previously shaped the environment and the ramifications of climate change. “The teaching, of course, from Wabanaki people is this notion that we take care of it [the planet], it takes care of us,” Ranco said. The Bangor Daily News, New Hampshire Public Radio, Connecticut Public, New England Public Media and WCAI-FM (Woods Hole, Massachusetts) shared the Maine Public story.
