CommuniTea: Indigenous Science & Land Acknowledgements

Tuesday, November 8, 2022
10:30 a.m.

November is Native American Heritage Month

This CommuniTea will give us the opportunity to discuss a couple of issues related to indigenous peoples:

  • Indigenous Science – The scientific framework we work within is typically called “Western Science”.  This is often seen as a contrast with traditional/indignous science.
  • Land Acknowledgements – The creation of land acknowledgments is a relatively new effort to recognize and honor the indigenous peoples who have occupied the land that we live and work on for thousands of years.  In our case here in Woods Hole, the Wampanoag Tribe.
