Show Notes

This is a recording of the live stream we did at SUNY-ESF for a class called Indigenous Issues in the Environment. The topic of this episode is Traditional Ecological Knowledge, also known as TEK. We start off by going over definitions of TEK, then we share our personal experience with it and how this idea has shaped our views as scientists. We also ask the students to define TEK and explore this in different contexts by asking the students questions and sharing some of the principles. Enjoy!

Here are some of the main points we went over:

- Definitions of TEK

- Worldviews and Social Systems

- The Challenge of Defining Words

- Convergence of knowledge systems

- Healing, Restoring and Connecting to Land

- Indigenous Research Agenda
