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.
New for Spring 2022: we are applying for grant funding for this class, and depending on how much we receive there may be an opportunity for an overnight field trip to the Point Reyes National Seashore, with transportation and housing costs covered. More information will be given as the class commences.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
