Kezia Setyawan is a recent graduate from the University of Oregon majoring in journalism. Her work centers community members on the margins and aims to provide them with sustainable platforms. Through portraiture, she spotlights the conversation surrounding the subject’s perspective and their environment.

The exhibit, Dimana? Disini, translates to Where are we? We are here. This gallery is dedicated to my uncle, Hans Widjaja. Through portraits of family and friends, it will demonstrate the breadth of experiences and perspectives Chinese Indonesians have in regards to understanding one’s identity.

Artist Biography:

Ay xɨtway,
Ink Nash waníksha Lúkwaiya ku shuyapuɨmtki Mitchell Lira. Tiinmamí tiichám. Wash nash mɨłɨłá. Wash nash skuliła íchna x̱wíimitx̱aw skuulitpamápa úlikanpa ku pikchaashiłá.

Hello Friends,
My Indigenous name is Lúkwaiya and that is how I preferred to be addressed. Until you learn the pronunciation of that, my English given name is Mitchell Lira. I am a Tribal Member of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and a Student at the University of Oregon. lastly, I am a photographer and this land is Indigenous land, remember that.

Artist Statement: 

Being an indigenous person means seeing media that is supposed to tell my story but rarely, if ever represented me or my community. That’s what has driven my desire to tell stories about Indigenous communities from an Indigenous perspective. There is a lack of Indigenous storytellers, that’s not because we are not here and interested, it is about who is controlling the narrative. The journalism industry has been exploitive, disrespectful, dishonest, and uninformed when trying to tell the stories of Indigenous peoples. Journalists have often sought to exploit or sensationalize our community’s stories rather than reveal the intense and vast beauty that lies within. I want to tell stories that humanize people and their existence, stories that tell the whole, rich picture of the lives lived in community. This series of photos come from my time in the Middle East and at the Warm Springs Early Childhood Education Center’s graduation; these photos are examples of the ways I want to tell people’s stories. We are here - Ichnaatash wa.

December 8 5:00 p.m.

How can centuries of environmental exploitation and social injustice in the U.S. be unraveled? Robin Morris Collin, the Norma Paulus Professor of Law at Willamette University College of Law, will share her passion for creating solutions to remedy environmental injustice. She will deliver the 2020-21 Colin Ruagh O’Fallon Memorial lecture “The Geography of Injustice and the Ecology of Reparations” via Zoom.

Collin asserts that, driven by the legacies of colonialism and slavery, U.S. public policy has deliberately subordinated nature and people in pursuit of profit by discounting the value of people and places into commodities for transactional exchange. Our economy, which relies on patterns of extraction, consumption, and pollution, has deeply harmed the earth and its people. Poor communities, especially communities of color, are disproportionately impacted by pollution, waste disposal, hazardous sites, resource depletion, and disasters in the natural and built environment.

To visualize how people and places are affected by environmental injustice, Collin has been utilizing the EPA’s EJSCREEN: Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool, which collects and analyzes information to assess and compare environmental and human health risks borne by populations identified by race, national origin, or income. Injustice has literally been mapped.

Beyond defining the problems, Collin will outline key strategies that can lead to healing. She contends that in order to heal we must reestablish a reciprocity between ourselves and nature, and we need to center environmental justice in the heart of sustainability. To that end, Collin maintains that environmental justice must be included in the core curriculum so all will understand why equity matters. We must reexamine our shared histories and recognize the truth of where we are now—not try to deny or disguise it. She also believes that injured communities and damaged places need to be reconnected, one by one.

Collin believes that reparations can change the ecology of subordination, but not with payments—payments will not change systems. Sustainable community-based projects create new systems that bolster relationships between people and the land—like the Southeastern African American Farmers’ Organic Network which is committed to culturally relevant, ancestrally guided, and ecologically sustainable, agricultural-based living. Healing entails a community-by-community focus on restorations, reparations, and re-creations.

Collin, the first U.S. law professor to teach sustainability courses in a U.S. law school, currently teaches Global Sustainability. Prior to her tenure at Willamette University, she was a professor at the University of Oregon’s Law School from 1993 to 2003. While at the UO, she cofounded the Coalition Against Environmental Racism’s Environmental Justice conference and the Sustainable Business Symposium, both of which continue into their second decade.

She has been awarded the David Brower Lifetime Achievement Award from the UO’s Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, the 2012 Oregon Woman of Achievement Award, the Leadership in Sustainability Award from the Oregon State Bar, the Campus Compact Faculty Award for Civic Engagement in Sustainability, and the national Environmental Justice Achievement Award from the Environmental Protection Agency for her work with the Oregon Environmental Justice Task Force. She was a founding board member of the Environmental Justice Action Group of Portland, and a founding member of Lawyers for a Sustainable Future.

Collin’s talk is free and open to the public. Registration is required to participate in the live Zoom event. Register at: ohc.uoregon.edu. The talk will be recorded and available for viewing on the OHC’s YouTube channel. For more information contact ohc@uoregon.edu

February 19 12:00 a.m.

The time of this event is TBD.

As the lead writer for New York Times Magazine’s “The 1619 Project,” a major viral multimedia initiative observing the 400th anniversary of the first African slaves arriving in America, award-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones explores the lasting legacy of black enslavement on the nation—specifically, how black Americans pushed for the democracy we have today. 

Nothing we know about American life today has been untouched by slavery. Everything from social infrastructure and segregation to music and sugar have been shaped by it. “The 1619 Project” features all black American authors, activists, journalists, and more, spreading its heartbreaking and absolutely essential message worldwide.

Hannah-Jones will speak about "The 1619 Project" and participate in a panel discussion with UO faculty and students about the need to remain vigilant in the fight against racial inequality at a time when the United States is deeply divided. The event will include an audience Q&A.
