How and why do ecosystems connected to Indigenous nations and people host some of the highest rates of biodiversity in the world? This workshop will invite us to closely observe the natural spaces that surround us daily. We will visit a floating bog ecosystem with Beedahbin Peltier and will discuss why ecosystems thrive when land is under the protection of Indigenous peoples. We'll also dig into why these knowledge systems are so important when it comes to our changing climate.
As you may know, all TRACKS workshops combine Indigenous Science and Western Science within an environmental context. All online workshops will relate to the natural world and encourage kids to think about their responsibilities to the land.
Length: 60 minutes
This workshop is best suited for grades 6-8. However, if requested, we are able to adapt most workshops for other age groups.
