Culturally Significant Plants Symposium
March 22 - March 24
The South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center and Chickasaw Nation will be hosting an event at the Chickasaw Retreat and Conference Center to discuss how climate change impacts culturally significant plants. Researchers and artisans in the field will be present to bring awareness to these issues. Registration details here.
We are initiating an effort to develop collaboration around culturally significant plants research efforts across the South Central region (NM, OK, TX, LA) through a research symposium. We hope that all participants will gain stronger relationships with people working on research in the region – as well as tools and products that will support your efforts.
This in person Kickoff Workshop will cover:
– Artisans sharing importance of culturally significant plants
– Overview of existing tribal culturally significant plants and climate change efforts
– Overview of existing terrestrial ecology and climate change efforts
– Discussions about science needs and priorities
The Kickoff Workshop will be a start of collaboration on culturally significant plants and climate change research.
