Mariah Gladstone

Mariah Gladstone grew up in Northwest Montana. After graduating from Columbia University with a degree in Environmental Engineering, she returned home where she developed Indigikitchen, an online cooking show dedicated to re-indigenizing our diets using digital media.

She is passionate about sustainability and completed a service term through Energy Corps where she helped write a Climate Action Plan for Whitefish, MT. She has been recognized as a "Champion for Change" through the Center for Native American Youth, a "Culture of Health Leader" through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a Grist 50 "Fixer", and is currently on the board of the Native Youth Food Sovereignty Alliance (NYFSA).

She also has a TEDx Talk where she discusses the importance of an Indigenous diet. At SUNY ESF, Mariah is a Sloan Foundation Indigenous Graduate Fellow and is pursuing an M.S. degree in Environmental Science with a concentration in Coupled Natural and Human Systems with a focus on indigenous knowledge. Mariah was recently named one of eight 2020 MIT Solve Indigenous Communities Fellows, a program that encourages the use of tech-based approaches to solve global challenges. Mariah is another excellent example of a GPES student success story!
