Oral history to track climate change – USA

Margaret Hiza Redsteer is a geologist of Native American descent who lives in the Navajo Nation, a native American reservation in the state of Arizona.  She is known in geologist circles for her pioneering weather, soil and land surveys of Navajo Nation and now it seems she is turning her focus to mapping the effects of climate change.  What is so unique about this project is that she is using oral history and memories to compliment the hard science.  High Country News has a fascinating interview with Redsteer about her project.
