Presenter Ryan Emanuel, North Carolina State University
What is Indigenous Science? Over many generations, Indigenous peoples developed and passed on important knowledge about ecosystems, agriculture, weather, medicine and more. This café will highlight examples of Indigenous Science and explore what these knowledge systems teach us about environmental management, sustainability, and life in a rapidly changing world.
