Wild Fisheries are Dead?!

As we close out Black History Month and head into March, I wanted to share this post from Movement Education Outdoors with you. Movement Education Outdoors is an organization connecting Rhode Island youth to the land they live on & the communities they live in. Their post celebrates the interconnectedness of Black life and waterways. In RI, marine industries are overwhelmingly white, and Movement Education Outdoors is working with RI Black Marine Professionals (including NAMA Board President Jason Jarvis) to dismantle the systems that have disconnected communities of color from the waterways around us while working to expand opportunities for BIPOC youth to access jobs in marine industries. The post dives into the historical and cultural significance of salt fish, whaling, oysters, and fish fries. These histories are just a few examples of those connections.

How has your connection with water sustained you or your ancestors?
