Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK), or indigenous knowledge (IK), is becoming more and more recognized in environmental decision-making and collaborative discussions, including land and wildlife management, natural resources quality standards, planning, impact analysis and assessment, and climate change. The incorporation of this traditional and indigenous knowledge in decision-making requires collaboration and coordination with the indigenous communities who understand, advocate and live with this knowledge. The collaborative work and processes needed to develop these partnerships with indigenous communities comes with its own types of considerations in terms of planning, preparation, and topics that arise in forging these discussions.

Our panel shares some understanding of TEK or IK, what are the basic considerations to incorporating this knowledge into collaborative dialogues, and how best prepare for and support those discussions with respect and understanding. Panelists will focus on the challenges in these cross-cultural discussions and possible dynamics or considerations to anticipate.

Participants of the webinar will leave with a greater understanding of TEK and IK, as well as tools, considerations, and resources to working collaboratively with Native Nations and Agencies when TEK comes into the discussions.
