This Roundtable discussion engages current and past scholarship on multispecies entanglements and environmental policies in the Anthropocene, with a focus on the United States, Canada, Mexico and indigenous perspectives. We de-center the human and contribute to decolonizing the field by incorporating indigenous, feminist, and cross-border perspectives on personhood, power, and agency. Topics include the agency of plants; the importance of in-human (inorganic) and non-human (organic) entities to anthropology; animal/plant/human/microbe entanglements; food sovereignty; resource extraction and commercialization; environmental ethics; and implications for environmental policymakers.
