Indigenous Knowledge and Climate Resiliency
October 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This discussion will lead us beyond land acknowledgments to a more collaborative and rights-based approach to climate resilience. Learn how indigenous land back efforts in both private and public lands are benefiting municipal efforts to restore and manage forests and waterways for increased biodiversity, greater productivity and resilience to shock and disturbance. Specifically, we will explore the historical characteristics of local indigenous foodways and consider how a transition to an alternative food system grounded in indigenous knowledge and leadership can support a more robust and resilient ecosystem in the context of our rapidly changing climate.
This lecture is a part of the MAPC series “Rooted in Nature: Indigenous Knowledge and Climate Resiliency.” Presenter: Kristen Wyman (Nipmuc)
