Inspiring conversations with OSU influencers: A record of climate change: Integrating Indigenous knowledge with conventional science with Alumni Fellow Margaret Hiza Redsteer.
Wed., Oct. 21 at 2 p.m.
Indigenous people tend to live in the world’s most climate sensitive regions, including Navajo elders who have routinely observed natural systems as part of local and traditional knowledge. Learning about the effects of climate change depends upon questions and measurements that begin with observations, expanded in this study to include the local knowledge of 105 elders, broadening our understanding of climate-induced ecosystem change and providing a compelling glimpse at the interconnectivity of humans with the natural world.
Presentation introduction by College of Earth, Oceans, and Atmospheric Sciences student Eve Selbie, Environmental Science and Psychology.
