Changes in the environment disproportionately impact Tribal communities across the Nation. Many Indigenous communities depend upon a healthy environment for spiritual, ceremonial, medicinal, subsistence, and economic needs. Many Tribal Nations located in present-day Wisconsin maintain knowledge systems that relay interconnectedness with the environment and lifeways. This presentation will touch on what traditional perspectives are and why they are important and vital to the environment in order to build resilience to the changes that are occurring.
We hope to have a full room at Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, WI but this event will also be presented virtually over Zoom. Please register to receive a link to join the event online.
