Vast number of caribou and vast number of snow goose overlap in space but not in time on the Arctic tundra and get entangled through their droppings that lead to nourishing. That we can call, multi-species world-making. And the art of telling the story? Multi-species storytelling. There is more. “We are the caribou people,” say the Gwich’in indigenous people of the Arctic North America. That is multi-species cosmology. Soon a heap of stories form and become a powerful agent of political action to resist oil extraction and advocate for environmental justice and conservation. And that would be—multi-species cosmo-politics.
