The 2nd Annual Indigenous Knowledge Symposium took place on March 25, 2022. Our theme was Making Connections Between Indigenous Cultural Teachings and the Scientific World. We had three fantastic presenters in the fields of archeology, mathematics, and environmental science. The goal of the event is to bring together campus faculty, staff, and students to learn more about the importance of Indigenous knowledge across academic disciplines and our speakers did a wonderful job of meeting that goal.
