Virtual Discussion with Tribal Leaders on Traditional Ecological Knowledge, hosted by California Natural Resources Agency
Tribal Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) plays a crucial role guiding environmental policy and conservation practices across California. During this important discussion tribal leaders will discuss how California Native American tribes and communities are using this knowledge to protect culturally significant species, traditional practices and the environment.
Tribal leaders will share personal experiences, expertise and a wealth of knowledge passed down through generations and explain how this knowledge is being used to safeguard native plants, preserve cultural practices, and restore cultural fires and other traditional practices.
