Dr. Lydia Jennings #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth #NAHM #AmericanIndianandAlaskaNativeHeritageMonth

Today we celebrate Dr. Lydia Jennings, from the Pascua Yaqui and Huichol Nations. Her research interests are soil health, environmental remediation, indigenous science, mining policy, and environmental data ownership by tribal nations.

Here’s more from the University of Arizona:

Lydia is from the Pascua Yaqui and Huichol Nations, and a PhD student in the Department of Environmental Science, with a Minor in American Indian Policy. Lydia works in Dr. Raina Maier’s Environmental Microbiology Group to identify soil health biogeochemical indicators of soil reclamation, in order to make modern mining reclamation more effective and cost efficient. Additionally, Lydia is interested in how policy has placed many mines on/or bordering tribal nations and extraction on public lands. Lydia states of the experience “As an Indigenous woman, I am delighted to use this platform as a “Voice of Science” to increase visibility of Indigenous scientists, and how we are not just the “subject” of scientific inquiry, but rather, are continuing our traditions of scientific practices held within cultural and environmental knowledge. It’s also an amazing opportunity to engage with a variety of researchers and together learn how we can make our research accessible to a range of audiences.”
