Prime HCN topics

 

I enjoyed learning about HCN’s history in the 50th anniversary issue (September 2020) and, in particular, Carl Segerstrom’s interview with Betsy Marston and Paul Larmer. I agree with Marston that regularly including Native journalists and issues is a welcome improvement and also that HCN should “start with the public lands, because everything flows from that.”

I’m not sure about “everything” flowing from the public lands, but one of the most important things to the future of the American West — water — clearly does. And that is why water and the public lands from which so much of it flows should be prime HCN topics for the next 50 years.
