Ellen Bradley

Ellen Bradley (she/her) is a Lingít skier and scientist born and raised in the Salish Sea (Puget Sound). A child of the People of the Tides, Bradley’s ancestors come from a place where the Tongass rainforest-painted mountains meet the ocean, Lingít Aaní (Southeast Alaska). She began skiing at the age of four and has fallen harder in love with it each season since. Skiing has always been the way Bradley has felt most connected to the land and its relatives, especially as she grew up away from her traditional homelands. As a scientist, she has worked on projects ranging from epiphyte growth on big leaf maples in the Hoh Rainforest to the impact of wildfires on phytoplankton in tundra lakes of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. In the many hats Bradley wears, she roots all of her work in traditional ecological knowledge, fighting for #LandBack and tribal sovereignty.
