Interviewing People about Their Connection to the Land

I’m proposing a project to a climate justice organization that would include interviewing people here in the Pajaro Valley (California, USA) about where they were born, their connection to that place, and where their families came from originally. We could also ask what has happened to the land over their lifetime and over past generations.

The project could engage a lot of people in thinking about the environment and help reestablish connection and caring. People from different groups could do the interviewing and editing, and we could host community presentations afterward. It would be a great project to show past funders and potential donors.

What questions have you used to draw out stories about people’s connection to place, how connections have been broken, and how the environment has been damaged? Thank you for any ideas!
