Traditional Ecological Knowledge: Learning from Indigenous Practices for Environmental Sustainability with Melissa K. Nelson, PhD

Saturday, September 25, 11:00 am – Arizona Time

Sponsored by Arizona G&T Cooperatives

Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) can provide models for a time-tested form of sustainability in the world today. Dr. Melissa K. Nelson, co-editor of the book “Traditional Ecological Knowledge: Learning from Indigenous Practices for Environmental Sustainability,” worked with a team of scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, to explore TEK through compelling cases of environmental sustainability from multiple tribal and geographic locations in North America and beyond. During her presentation, Dr. Nelson will discuss the book project, as well as TEK’s implications for research and education.

Melissa K. Nelson, Ph.D. is a professor of Indigenous Sustainability in the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University. She actively advocates for Indigenous Peoples rights and sustainable lifeways in higher education, nonprofits, and philanthropy, and is particularly passionate about Indigenous food sovereignty at local, regional and global levels. She is Anishinaabe, Cree, Métis, and Norwegian (a proud member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians).
