Climate Change Series: Aanji-bimaadiziimagak o’ow aki
Wednesday, August 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Climate change will affect the ability of Ojibwe tribal members to continue exercising their off-reservation treaty rights to continue their lifeways and to hunt, fish, and gather culturally important beings. We studied the climate change vulnerability of culturally important beings in the Ceded Territories using a combination of Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Scientific Ecological Knowledge. Manoomin (wild rice), which is integral to Ojibwe culture and is already declining in population in the Ceded Territories, is the most vulnerable being. Climate change impacts on culturally important beings were reported by tribal members across the Ceded Territories, and Ojibwe people are so intertwined with these beings that they fear a loss of identity as some disappear from the landscape. Hannah Panci is a scientist in the Climate Change Program at the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Registration required by 7/31. Wednesday, 6 – 7 PM. $13/Non-Member and $10/Member. Participants will meet in the Forest Room in Discovery Hall at the Discovery Center.
