Yale Climate Connections features #GullahGeechee
Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) is featured on Yale Climate Connections.
“These things are now things a lot of scientists talk about and they’re examining and they’re studying, but we didn’t need all that – we live on the land! We know there’s some changes happening. We just didn’t call it climate change.”
‘We know there’s some changes happening. We just didn’t call it climate change.’
Queen Quet Marquetta L. Goodwine is the elected leader of the Gullah/Geechee Nation. She says the problems are compounded by tourism-driven development that has destroyed the coastal marshland that helps protect against storms and flooding.
So she says people need to rethink their relationship with coastal areas and work to protect them. Tune in to hear the interview at
