Kristina Hunt is the new Career Advisor for the College of Natural Resource and Sciences.

She discovered her talent for building relationships with young adults, inspiring them to reach their full potential through her time as a counselor (6 years) and coach (8 years).  As a counselor, she worked to cultivate an appreciation for the outdoors among youth of all ages by leading them through week-long outdoor experiences in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.

She earned all-academic honors during her participation on the intercollegiate volleyball team. Kristina likes spending time with her family, hiking, playing volleyball and relaxing at the family ranch. She enjoys learning about all the pieces that come together to make a ranch successful, including the care of large animals and the role timber management, environmental stewardship and watershed protection have in the ongoing sustainability of resources. Kristina’s office is in Gist Hall 125.

Library Hosts Book of the Year Film Series University Library

The HSU Book of the Year Committee is pleased to announce the Book of the Year Film Series titled Klamath Film Fridays.

Three screenings will take place in the Library’s Fishbowl (Room 209) this semester, followed by a Q & A and a brief discussion about the cultural, environmental, and political impacts on the Klamath River. 

This film series ties in with “Through the Eyes of Native Tribes: Stories of the Klamath River” on display in HSU’s Goudi’ni Gallery (January 28 through February 20).  This series is hosted by HSU Library, the Klamath Connection, and the Native American Studies Department.

On February 5, “Battle for the Klamath” will be screened.  This 2006 documentary focuses on the intense battle over fish, water and conflicting ways of life, between upstream farmers on one side and downstream Native American tribes, commercial fisherman and environmentalists on the other.  Prof. Marlon Sherman from Native American Studies will facilitate the discussion afterward.

On March 25, “A River Between Us” will be screened. Balancing the sheer beauty of the river’s surface with its underlying ills of injustice and inequality, the film focuses on the personal stories of a group of individuals who finally chose to put the past behind then and came together to create a historic water rights compromise for the good of all. Q & A and a discussion to follow in the evening.
6 – 8 pm, Native Forum
Q & A and a discussion with Craig Tucker, Natural Resources Policy Advocate for the Karuk Tribe and Frankie Meyers, Yurok tribal member, and Klamath Justice Coalition.

On April 29, “Return of the River” will be screened. This film is about the Elwha River in Washington State. This film captures the tenacity of individuals who would not give up on a river, mirroring the tenacity of salmon headed upstream to spawn. Kerri Malloy from Native American Studies will facilitate the discussion afterward.
