The Southern Pomo and Coast Miwok people have lived in the Laguna de Santa Rosa area for thousands of years; learning how and what to gather from this land and developing a deep relationship with it. Today, society is studying the effects of climate change to our environment, our way of life, and methods we might use to mitigate and adapt to these changes. The “Traditional Environmental Knowledge” (TEK) of native people offers a template to guide the mitigation process and provide techniques for adaption. Tribal Elder Nick Tipon will talk about the connection between the science of climate change and the use of TEK, share some of these recent efforts, and lead a discussion.
