Presented by the School of Natural Resources, the 2021 Albrecht Earth Day Lecture will focus on Indigenous reciprocal relationships with the land and soil. The speakers will offer insight to Indigenous epistemological, ontological and axiological land-based relations and how Indigenous communities practice reciprocity with the earth in ways that nourish and sustain each other.

Jaquetta Shade-Johnson, PhD, is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation (ᏣᎳᎩᎯ ᎠᏰᎵ) and an assistant professor at the University of Missouri in the Department of English and the School of Visual Studies' Digital Storytelling Program. Ed Smith’s (Osage Descent) passion lies in the resurgence of traditional food systems and food sovereignty. He established and managed an Indigenous food garden for 10 years and has helped several tribes and American Indian community members establish their own traditional gardens.

A very special recognition to the late Carl Ferguson for his generous gift in honor of professor W. A. Albrecht, which allows Mizzou to celebrate William Albrecht’s legacy during our annual Earth Day Lecture.
