This class will engage in the theoretical and practical components of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), the knowledge system Indigenous People use to interact with and manage the environment around them. Specifically, this class will focus on California ecosystems and people, and how the techniques and perspectives of TEK can be applied to public policy today. Students will learn different perspectives and ideas about management than what they may have been exposed to in a western perspective, and will learn to apply those ideas to public policy and their everyday lives. Field trips on our within walking distance of campus will take place to give students an opportunity to see and experience the techniques and ideas we discuss first hand. This class is open to students of all majors, years, and backgrounds.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
