The Role of Indigenous Knowledge in Science
The Role of Indigenous Knowledge in Science by Larry Mericulieff, renowned Aleut scholar, writer, speaker, leader and founder of the Global Center for Indigenous Leadership and Lifeways. Decision-making based on what is defined as âbest available scienceâ guides modern day policy-making (laws, regulations) and academia. How are other ways of knowing accommodated? In fact, what are these âother ways of knowing?â Is science limited, disadvantaged, impaired without them? Learn from the perspective of one who grew up in the middle of the Bering Sea (St. Paul Island), has traveled widely, and been featured in interviews on NPR, Al Jazeera, and BBC.
The Anchorage Science Pub offers regular meetings, open to the public, at which presenters give short, informal talks about scientific topics, followed by a question and answer session. Potential presenters are encouraged to contact us here, as are attendees with ideas for interesting topics for future science pub events.
