Ecological Resources from Indigenous People
We are proud to include a vibrant Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Section within our membership, and in our work to facilitate the participation of Indigenous people in the Society’s activities and leadership. These resources are compiled in our 2021 celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
The TEK Section began a year-long webinar series in 2021; you can view these recordings, and monitor upcoming opportunities.
