Celebrating Indigenous & Anticolonial Science

In honor of the publication of Fresh Banana Leaves in January 2022, we're highlighting a handful of wonderful books by Indigenous scientists and celebrating anti-colonial science and Indigenous ways of knowing. For more resources and information, check out the American Indian Science & Engineering Society, a national nonprofit organization focused on substantially increasing the representation of Indigenous peoples of North America and the Pacific Islands in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) studies and careers.

Thank you to Dr. Jessica Hernandez for talking with as part of her virtual book tour and inspiring the creation of this page, and thank you to Dr. Max Liboiron for writing Pollution is Colonialism, where we first read about a number of the works listed here.
