The core component of the services DGW Consulting provides is education.
We understand that environmental justice (EJ) for Native peoples is a different animal than it is for all other EJ communities. If this is new information for you, you are invited to familiarize yourself further with this concept from the resources below.
Dina Gilio-Whitaker wrote the book on EJ in Indian country. As Long As Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice from Colonization to Standing Rock (Beacon Press, 2019) is a good beginning point for understanding the issues American Indians face in their quest for environmental justice.
As the principle consultant at DGW Consulting, Dina teaches an introductory online course on the topic through the Center for World Indigenous Studies, titled Environmental Justice in Indian Country. The course can be completed in one hour and gives a very broad picture of the concepts she covered in the book. And at $39 it’s affordable!
Invite Dina to give a talk to your group, conference, or other gathering.
As an educator Dina teaches courses on a variety of American Indian issues.
Visit her website www.dinagwhitaker.wordpress.com for a partial archive of her written work.
If you are considering hiring Dina as a consultant, she’ll give a one-hour address free of charge with a required travel expense. This way you’ll get a sense of her knowledge as well as teaching style to see if she is a good fit for your needs.
