We Are All Connected: Earth & Sky (dii ndeh k’oh tah gots’êh yat’aa)
The ESA Traditional Ecological Knowledge Section will be hosting a webinar series to facilitate a virtual space to welcome and hear from Indigenous voices who work to help sustain and nurture TEK within their communities. The speakers will share tools, processes and practices they have learned through activities that work for them in their journey to utilize TEK.

In these times of uncertainty, the TEK Section recognizes the importance of sharing Indigenous knowledge with our ESA community so that valuable lessons of reclaiming Indigenous languages, culture and traditions can be shared in a way to create better understanding of TEK. It’s an opportunity for Indigenous thought leaders to share their wisdom, knowledge and experiences with the ESA community to reflect on questions arising within the western scientific community of how we build an emerging space that honors and respects both Ways of Knowing.

Join this presentation by the University of Alberta's Anita Lafferty.

Sep 24, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
