To prepare for this meeting, we invite you to read a few articles and webpages.
1. Weaving Traditional Ecological Knowledge into Biological Education: A Call to Action by Robin Kimmerer

1. Check out this Pinterest board from STEM Education with resources for Indigenous Knowledge and Science Teaching
2. Research the Indigenous people who are native to where you live, many of whom still live there. A good tool to use as a starting point is this map. We will share at the meeting what we learned!
Read Robin Kimmerer’s book, Braiding Sweetgrass. We encourage you all to get your hands on this book at some point! Check it out for future reading opportunities, and a resource you can go back to time and time again.
