Engaging with Climate Change Through Cultural Practice
Join us for a conversation about how archaeology can be used to better understand climate change, and how we integrate tribal experience and understanding into everyday work. The program will be moderated by Sara Gonzalez, Burke Museum Curator of Archaeology, and feature David Harrelson, Briece Edwards, and other members from the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.
More about the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde:
The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde have a long-term relationship with climate changes. Through archaeological records, oral histories, and cultural practices, there is a readily identified baseline of information of response and reliance throughout these changes. The Tribe recognizes its responsibility as stewards of cultural and natural resources throughout its 14 million acres of ancestral and ceded home lands and necessity to identify and engage with the changes of today and tomorrow. The office is situated to work with agencies, institutes, universities, and individuals as they invest in their own actions and needs related to these ensuing changes.
