Seeing the utan (forest) for the orang (people): A decolonial Indigenous approach to orang utan conservation
This talk will discuss how complex human - orang utan relations persist in spite of neocolonial conservation enclosures, which seek to securitize orang utans as ‘biodiversity’ and control humans as a threat thereto. Through analysis of Indigenous naming practices, knowledges, and narratives, Dr June Rubis will advocate for relating to orang utans not as objects to protect, but instead as beings to coexist with. This, she proposes, is what it takes to sustain wild orang utans as more than an abstract(-ed) species with conservation value.
