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.
