Rekindling Indigenous Fire Practices in California w/ Deniss J Martinez & Tony Marks-Block
California’s wildfire suppression planning leaves a lot to be desired. On today’s show, we’ll learn how our neighboring native communities are rejecting the state’s militaristic approaches of fighting fire, by stewarding a relationship with it. Our guests today – Deniss J Martinez and Tony Marks-Block – are researchers and two of the co-authors of a new article called “Indigenous Fire Futures – Anticolonial Approaches to Shifting Fire Relations in California”. Deniss J Martinez is a research administrator in the Native American Studies Department at UC Davis where she researches collaborative governance, Indigenous environmental justice, and fire management. She is a descendant of Tutunaku people, and grew up in Shasta and Karuk homelands in colonized Northern California. Tony Marks-Block is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Geography and Environmental Studies at Cal State East Bay in Hayward, on unceded Chochenyo Ohlone territory. Tony’s research is focused on the socio-ecology of small-scale subsistence practices, including prescribed and cultural fire.
