    *Starred Review* This timely compilation of interviews shines a spotlight on the environmental knowledge of 20 individuals who belong to Native Nations. Rushworth, a Native American educator and activist, and Jamail, an award-winning journalist, spoke with a wide variety of Indigenous academics, artists, and community leaders, seeking to center their voices in the ever-intensifying debate about how to heal a hurting planet. Rushworth poses this question of enormous urgency to Edgar Ibarra, a college student and abolitionist activist: Our focus is the disruption of Earth; how did we get here? How do we move on in the right way? The interviewees speak freely, generating the warmth of intimate conversation and pointing to numerous solutions already at work in Indigenous communities. Dr. Melissa K. Nelson, a proponent of tribal food sovereignty, sees the COVID-19 pandemic as proof of humanity's failure to understand that every natural resource, including air, is communal. Musician Lyla June Johnston acknowledges that since many Native Nations have survived previous epidemics and social collapse, there's much to learn from intertribal conflicts. Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Natalie Diaz elucidates arising emergencies in the English language itself. Insights like these, and dozens more, deserve deep attention and will hopefully spur readers into action to save the planet and themselves. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
