Indigenous Science and Academic Science: Can we learn to see with both eyes?Campus CalendarEvent Facebook page

11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: Nifkin Lounge, Marshall Hall, ESF
What is your way of knowing? What is your lens? Worldviews shape our ways of understanding, yet it is possible to hold multiple perspectives. In this workshop, we will explore two ways of knowing: Indigenous science and academic science. Through both lenses, we will consider contrasts and overlaps and will work together to understand the story/ies of Lake Onondaga and its history, both as a sacred place to the Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and as the site of environmental devastation. Combining the knowledge and creativity of workshop participants, we will envision possibilities for the future which make biocultural restoration - a restoration which takes into account the entwined ecological and cultural - possible. We will also discuss real-life applications of work in biocultural restoration, with specific examples of jobs and ways to get involved.
This workshop is open to the public. Snacks will be provided.
