Dr Rebekah Paci-Green
Over the course of Fall Quarter in 2021 and Winter Quarter in 2022, I worked as a Climate Change Research Intern for the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). I worked as a hired intern for the DEP on climate change related projects ranging from drafting a BIA Agricultural Management Plan, developing a five-workshop Community Climate Change Education Workshop Series, Lushootseed language integration projects, digital graphics and art, and a Swinomish Ethnobotany Book. As an intern, I utilized my passion in community planning and disaster risk reduction to serve a community that is both on the frontlines of the climate change crisis and extremely resilient to the changing climate.
