Indigenous Scientific Knowledges Deserve Protection and Respect with Dr. Warren Cardinal-McTeague 

September 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

September 17th, 1:00-2:30 Indigenous Scientific Knowledges Deserve Protection and Respect. By Warren Cardinal-McTeague 

 The Indigenous sciences are as numerous, unique, and diverse as the many Indigenous peoples of North America and the world. Yet, the contributions of Indigenous scientific knowledges have been actively suppressed and overlooked, in the past and present. This talk will introduce the Indigenous sciences as a mechanism to challenge western thought through a narrative that centers the stories, struggles, and triumphs of Indigenous peoples and their sciences. These lessons will be tied into the speaker’s current research on Indigenous data sovereignty and the protection of Indigenous data and knowledge housed in the biological collections of museums and universities. CLICK HERE to Register.
