Harmful Algal Bloom Conference 2022

Thayne Yazzie playing guitar at the podium

Thayne Yazzie is a STEM education outreach coordinator at Northwest Indian College’s Salish Sea Research Center.

“Not all the panelists presented their work in the same way — Thayne Yazzie of Northwest Indian College, located in Bellingham, Washington, gave a live performance on his guitar to demonstrate how he uses the power of music to teach his students about the food web. He started off with a simple bass line (representing plants) and added on musical melodies little by little, until he eventually ended with a higher-pitched riff representing the swooping of a hawk as it looks for a meal. The composed piece, which played out of the speakers at the end of the performance, represented the interconnectivity and complexity of the food web. Yazzie, who is the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education outreach coordinator at the college’s Salish Sea Research Center, is a member of the Dine’/Navajo Nation and uses place-based indigenous knowledge to educate the community about the ecosystem, including how HABs present risks to the safe harvest of seafood and shellfish.”
