2021 Speaker Announcements
Quinn Read is the Oregon Policy Director for the Center for Biological Diversity. She works to protect and restore Oregon’s imperiled species and landscapes. She is a member of Oregon’s Environmental Justice Task Force and served on Governor Kate Brown’s Environmental Equity Committee.
In her talk on Fish & Wildlife Commission Reform, Quinn will take a close look at how state commissions shape fish and wildlife conservation policy, and how the enduring stain of colonialism and white supremacy that prioritizes the “legacy” of sport hunting, trapping and fishing continues to permeate decision making.
Corrine Nugent-Hayes, a longtime Speak for Wolves attendee and supporter, will open the conference with a reading of her poem, “When Shall These Mournings For Us End“. In mourning the death of another Yellowstone Wolf, 1155Mb Corrine had to wait until O’ Great Creator began sending through her these Honorable & Humbled Words. Aho.
“Remembering my teachings as a young Native girl proved important while watching the Eco-system’s full cycle of all Humanity. Mankind, Animal Kind were created to show the world how true oneness must work together. A lesson I continued as I raised my own Wolves while having respect for all kind. Afforded many gifts from Our Creator, I learned I had such passion for life in a whole I began to love Art & Creative writing.”
