Podcast title Yonder Lies: Unpacking the Myths of Jackson Hole
Website URL http://www.yonderlies.com
Description Few places have come to symbolize the rapidly-changing American West quite like the valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming—grizzlies still graze by the roadside, elk eat farm-raised grass, and, all the while, service workers, ranchers, ski bums, and billionaires also jostle to find their piece of paradise. For millennia, the human and non-human residents of Jackson Hole have co-existed in a complex struggle for the good life. But what is the state of this balance these days? And how have these relationships been shaped by recent changes in resources, demographics, and priorities of our communities? Yonder Lies, a new podcast from KHOL 89.1 and Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative Researchers, is your invitation to dive into the nitty-gritty of Jackson Hole. Hosted by writers and researchers Hannah Habermann and Jesse Bryant, Yonder Lies shares intimate stories of the people, conflicts, and institutions that have made this place what it is today. Subscribe now to join us, as we help sort fact from fiction and wonder what the future may hold for this beloved American landscape.

1. Stranded Sheep, Gutted Goats, and Flying Firing Squads

More than half a century ago, Idaho Fish and Game decided they wanted to hunt mountain goats so they captured some near Coeur d'Alene and released them into the Snake River Range. Fifty years later, these goats are threatening the extinction of the Teton Bighorn Sheep. 

Between the recording and when you'll hear this, nearly 100 mountain goats will be killed by helicopter gunners in Grand Teton National Park.

In this episode, we try to understand how it came to this.

2. Indigenous Pasts and Presents (Pt.2)

In this episode, we hear the perspectives of three influential leaders from three different tribes: Jason Baldes (Eastern Shoshone), Lynnette Grey Bull (Northern Arapahoe & Hunkpapa Lakota), and Len Necefer (Navajo).

Each will offer their perspective on the through-line from past to present and into the future. We will notice that in many ways this line finds its way following efforts of education, coalition building, and healing.

We hope that after hearing this episode listeners will be inspired to get involved with indigenous issues in communities near where they live!

3. Indigenous Pasts and Presents (Pt.1)

The stories of Native Americans have long been erased in tellings of the history of the United States and in histories of Jackson Hole.

In this episode, we ask: How do we and how should we understand this violent and complicated history? What is true and what is false? And where does the legal relationship between the United States and North American Tribes stand today?

This episode is the first of two, diving into the history of the Shoshone-Bannock people in this area and the creation of the Wind River Reservation and the Fort Hall Reservation. We’ll also explore two important Supreme Court cases with their roots in Wyoming, which have shaped the relationship between treaties, land use, and the hunting rights of tribal communities: Ward v. Race Horse and Herrera v. Wyoming.

How can we move forward in telling a more accurate story of this landscape today?

4. Grand Teton National Park

The controversial creation of Grand Teton National Park is in some ways the beginning of the culture that still dominates Jackson Hole today: outdoor recreation and aesthetic experience of nature.

In this episode, we ask: What is there to do when the same activities that allow people to enjoy the land are also leading to its degradation? How do we reconcile seemingly irreconcilable land uses? Should wealth equate to decision-making power in regards to environmental management? And how do we combat the tendency for cultures of leisure to become cultures of apathy?

We will cover the differences between conservation and preservation of land, the US Forest Service and National Park Service, how National Monuments are created and differ from National Parks, and the critical compromises made between the residents of Jackson, Wyoming and the US Federal Government that led to a very unique land management situation in Grand Teton National Park.
