Sidore Lecture

Decolonizing Science: Centering Indigenous Science, Methodologies, and Practices

Decolonizing requires us to recognize the limits of Western science and reconcile academic research with Indigenous ways of knowing. This panel will showcase efforts within our region to bring Indigenous knowledge and decolonial approaches into scholarly methodologies, including the collection, stewardship, and analysis of data from Native lands.


Darren Ranco, PhD (Penobscot), Chair of Native American Programs, University of Maine (panel moderator)

Simone Whitecloud, PhD, Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Research Ecologist, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, Hanover, NH

This year's Sidore Series, "Honoring the Mother of All People; Contemporary Indigenous Leadership in Revitalizing Environmental and Cultural Sustainability," will consider how Indigenous knowledge and cultural heritage can deepen our thinking about sustainable futures.  


The Saul O Sidore Memorial Lecture Series was established in 1965 in memory of Saul O Sidore of Manchester, New Hampshire. The purpose of the series is to offer the University community and the state of New Hampshire programs that raise critical and sometimes controversial issues facing our society. The University of New Hampshire Center for the Humanities sponsors the programs.
