When I found out that I would be spending my summer at Inian Islands Institute as an intern, I was not at all sure what to expect.
Five sun rises and six sun sets went by in the in the blink of an eye.
The 2018 Environmental Rhetoric course brought together 12 students, of all ages, from all walks of life. The unifying factor? A deep love and fierce passion to protect the natural spaces of our world.
The course was based around the book Across the Shaman’s River, and taught by the author, Dan Henry. For six days, we discussed the themes of the book that centered around John Muir, Wilderness, Indigenous people of the region, and above all, rhetoric. The art of using all available means to persuade.
