“The Fierce Urgency of Now”: Persuasive Writing
Tribal College Journal
By Ryan Winn, CMN Faculty


Ryan Winn

We writers are passionate advocates for our causes. We post to social media, compose essays for classes, and circulate our views in tribal college and university (TCU) publications. Some of us have written words that instigate change, but too many of us see our aspirations fail to reach fruition. We may get discouraged by our readers’ inaction, and that’s understandable. But the reality is that while passionate, unscripted rants may warrant us some catharsis, it’s well-defined arguments that change minds, mobilize the apathetic, and even inspire legislation. Writers should consider the following when crafting persuasive appeals, so we can fortify our positions and forge a path for others to follow. Read more

Shifting Seasons: Building Tribal Capacity for Climate Change Adaptation Summit


From October 14-17, participants from tribal, federal, state, higher education, and non-profit agencies and organizations came together for the "Shifting Seasons: Building Tribal Capacity for Climate Change Adaptation Summit." The program was presented by the Sustainable Development Institute of the College of Menominee Nation in Keshena, WI. Those attending shared knowledge and discussed resources that will benefit both tribal and non-tribal entities concerned with climate change adaptation, specifically in the Northeast Region.


The four-day event focused on building relationships and increasing involvement in climate change. “We heard a lot of things about what tribes are doing, like adaptation planning,” said Kyle Whyte, professor at Michigan State University (MSU) and one of the event organizers, “and what tribes have been doing and what they plan to do. We shared a lot of information about different networks as well as how to deal with climate change issues. There’s such diversity and richness in tribes for adaptation.” Read more

The Three Sisters Garden: A Model of Community and Sustainable Growth

This type of companion planting is widespread among indigenous Native American farming societies


Three Sisters Garden

According to Native American legend, corn, beans, and squash are three sisters who grew and flourished together for the benefit of the community. Corn is the oldest sister. She stands tall in the center watching over her two other sisters, squash and beans. Squash is the next sister. She protects her sisters from weeds and shades the soil from the sun with her leaves, keeping it cool and moist. Beans are the third sister. She climbs through the squash and then up the corn stalks binding the three sisters together as she reaches for the sun. Read more
