Ecosystems, Societies and Knowledges Research Group

Our research group focuses on Indigenous societies and the lands/waters to which these societies are attached. We study the ways Indigenous nations and communities understand their environments within their diverse cultures and epistemologies. Our work addresses the entangled relations among Indigenous nations; federal, state, and local governments- and among Western science and Indigenous knowledges. We primarily use methods from ecology and anthropology in our work. Chi Miigwech (biggest thanks) for visiting our website!
