I also think this is a great initiative and support Bjoern's suggestion to broaden to BIPOC. In addition, I'd like to request that people refrain from responding to this if they don't have serious suggestions or have names of BIPOC folks who have contributed to isotope geochemistry that they'd like to make others aware of (in regards to the previous message on this thread).
I think this is a very good and overdue initiative, but I suggest to be
more inclusive an broaden it to Black, Indigenous and People of Colour
It will still be very relevant for Indigenous Peoples' Day.
All the best, Bjoern

There are some obvious ones (Curie for example) but I could use a broader list. While I would welcome all suggestions, in particular I was hoping to make a list of indigenous isotope geochemists for Indigenous People’s day on Monday.
