Mapping Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK)
Host: Native Learning Center
Time: July 9, 9am MT
Tribes have a unique role in safeguarding natural resources. Dr. Cyntia Annett, a Research Associate Professor at Kansas State University and member of the Google Earth Outreach Trainer Network will lead this full day (3 hrs in AM & PM) workshop where participants learn how to use Google My Maps in the morning to map basic elements of their traditional ecological knowledge and then Google Earth in the afternoon to take the mapping further. Both platforms allow for private, confidential use of this data. We will also discuss how many federal agencies now have TEK policies and how tribes can use TEK to influence agency decision-making. Most of the workshop will take place in small breakout rooms where participants will work on mapping their TEK.
