This lecture will explore relationships between people and their environment as viewed through scientific and American Indian cultural perspectives. Various methods are used to understand and describe the history and ecology of a region — from biological, anthropological and historical frameworks. Each approach includes innovative channels for collaboration between communities, tribes, organizations, agencies, and academics. Multi-disciplinary studies that investigate linkages between socio-cultural and ecological factors across different scales will be presented to understand the dynamics of history, culture and place.
Recovering Voices is hosting this public talk as part of its Cultural Planet lecture series.
