Pre-Conference Intensive – Acorns, Elderberries and Pine Nuts: How to Keep Our Cultural Landscapes Healthy Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Demonstration and Workshop

Western Science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge need each other to solve today’s crises. This hands-on immersion in the knowledge, sciences, and practices of California Native peoples working to protect and restore their eco-cultural heritage will focus especially on traditional food gathering and processing, and sophisticated, time-tested land management practices. The workshop will be full of fun, food and culture-bearers. We are particularly interested in engaging both Native and non-Native conservationists, scientists, NGOs, and governmental organizations seeking to connect with TEK holders and Indigenous stewardship ethics to help refine their own understanding of ecosystems and their land management systems. Co-hosted by Cara Romero (Chemehuevi), Director of Bioneers’ Indigenous Knowledge Program; Tiffany Adams (Miwok/Maidu/ Chemehuevi); Leah Mata (Northern Chumash); and Edward Willie (Pomo/Walkiki/Wintu).
