Ear to the Ground No. 249: It's Not Lost, it Just Went to Sleep

Ella Robertson and Eric Wana of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate in northeastern South Dakota talk about reawakening their people's connections to farming, the land, and water.

Ella Robertson and Eric Wana were interviewed as part of the We Are Water initiative, which documented the stories of several farmers in the upper reaches of the Minnesota River watershed who are using innovative production methods to not only protect our water, but to make their land more resilient in the face of challenges such as climate change. For more information, see the Sharing Stories web page. There you will find links to webinar discussions involving Robertson and Wana, as well as other farmers who were interviewed for this series.
