Online Webinar


What approach should we have when initiating conversations with Indigenous peoples? How can we engage and collaborate with Indigenous peoples in our conservation work? What are effective ways to integrate Indigenous knowledge in our efforts to advance management, adaptation and mitigation of the impacts of climate change? These are some of the hard questions organizations have been asking themselves as they started engaging and collaborating with Indigenous peoples. This webinar will focus on understanding what is Traditional Ecological Knowledge (or TEK), how TEK is gathered, why TEK is important, and how to meaningfully use TEK in programs. It will also discuss some of the best practices to connect and collaborate with Tribal Nations, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and communities to consider how TEK helps assess and address the impacts of climate change.
