IAS Partners and Advisors with Bucky

Respect. Relationship. Responsibility. Reciprocity.

Our partners gave voice to and enacted these Indigenous Arts and Sciences initiative guiding principles during last week’s advisory meeting. For two days on Ho-Chunk ancestral lands (Madison and Baraboo), we shared IAS stories and did collaborative visioning for the future. We are excited by the work each community is doing towards engaging Native youth in science learning that honors and integrates their cultures and indigenous wisdom!

Miigwech, Pinagigi, Thank You to those who were able to come. We give special thanks to the participation of our Partners from the Bad River, Ho-Chunk, Lac du Flambeau, and Red Cliff Nations. We also thank our Advisors who were able to attend: Robin Wall Kimmerer, David O’Connor, Woody White, and RunningHorse Livingston and Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center for their collaboration.
