MESc student Noah Schlager will present his thesis research on the colonial, anti-indigenous history of the founding figures of F&ES and American Forestry. Many of the figures we celebrate and name buildings and scholarships after at our school were open in their bigotry towards Native peoples and participated in removing Native peoples from their homelands. Join Environmental Justice at Yale (EJAY) for a discussion of this troubling legacy at our own institution and how we can work together to both remember this history and undo the legacies of colonialism still very much alive at F&ES.
