"Climate Change Red Alert! Can Traditional Indigenous Knowledge Rescue the World?" - Daniel R. Wildcat, Yuchi, member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma, is the director of the Haskell Environmental Research Studies Center and dean of the College of Natural and Social Sciences at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas. Richard Thompson Memorial Lecture

The Haskell Environmental Research Studies Center provides support for programs of interest to American Indian and Alaska Native communities and has most recently focused on the effects of climate change on indigenous communities. Wildcat has authored a variety of articles and books, including Power and Place: Indian Education in America, which he co-wrote with the late Vine Deloria, Jr. His book Red Alert! Saving the Planet with Indigenous Knowledge draws on American Indian cultural practices and nature-centered beliefs to advocate a modern strategy to combat global warming.
