Indigenous Knowledge Field Camp
The Indigenous Knowledge Field camp is a cultural immersion experience aimed at recognizing the intersections of Native traditional knowledge and Western science through a four-day experience on Native American land, including the Salmon River. Activities will provide opportunities for increased cross-cultural understanding through presentations, talks and individual exploration of stories and traditional practices.
Selected faculty and Native student pairs will gain a unique chance to examine their perceptions and beliefs through the duration of the field camp. The experience will expose participants to traditional Native American lands, current tribal STEM related programs, and new ways to re-think STEM research conducted in universities by faculty and Native and non–Native students. The Indigenous Knowledge Field Camp is available to Native American and Alaska Native students and their faculty mentors.
