Hanitchak Lecture Series - Camille Seaman on "Connection and Purpose: A Call for Us All to be Good Ancestors"

The Native American Cultural Center and the American Indian Staff Forum of Stanford University present the Pam Hanitchak Lecture Series with Camille Seaman, 2013-14 Stanford John S. Knight Journalism Fellow.  Lunch will be provided.
A photographer well known for her work in the Polar Regions and as a storm chaser, Seaman's images advocate for recognizing the important relationship between humans and their natural surroundings.  In her work on indigenous stories of climate change, she articulates that we are all "native" to this planet and unless we start to act like it we are in serious peril as a species!
Of the Shinnecock-Montaukett peoples on Long Island NY, Seaman has won several photography awards, including a National Geographic Award and the Critical Mass Top Monograph.  In 2008, she was honored with a solo exhibit, "The Last Iceberg," at the National Academy of Sciences.  Seaman was also a 2013 TED Senior Fellow 2013.
