Traditional Ecological Knowledge

indigenous ecological knowledge

The Traditional Ecological Knowledge Certificate demonstrates how to collect traditional knowledge, and how to present the maps and reporting. Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) is sometimes referred to as Indigenous knowledge. It uses the wisdom, information, and knowledge that has evolved over hundreds of years of living as part of the environment. TEK is an important source of environmental information that allows First Nations communities to realize their own expertise, and apply their own knowledge and practices to help protect their way of life. This knowledge is specific to a location and includes the relationships between plants, animals, natural phenomena, landscapes and timing of events that are used for lifeways, including but not limited to fishing, hunting, trapping, berry picking, medicinal plant use, agriculture, and forestry.
