Podcast: how walking through ancestral lands and a citizen science project are contributing to healing the Navajo Nation

All My Relations - “Healing The Land is Healing Ourselves” with Kim Smith

Kim is a beautiful example of what happens when you take matters into your own hands—taking things step by step, learning from other Indigenous communities, and implementing projects in a community-grounded way that takes into account all our human and non-human relations.

Kim tells us about her 1200+ mile journey with Nihígaal Bee Lina (Journey For Existence) which walked to all of the sacred mountains of her people. She also discusses her work healing land in her home town of St. Michaels, Arizona and her long-term citizen science project to collect data from Navajo people about the impact of extractive energy plants in their homelands
