TEK, the art and science of
resilience for the sustainability of future generations, is critically needed
as a partner to Western science to restore the world’s ecosystems and biological
and cultural diversity, including native foods and languages. Professor of
American Indian studies at San Francisco state, Melissa Nelson is President of
the Cultural Conservancy, a Native American nonprofit dedicated to the
preservation and revitalization of indigenous cultures and their ancestral
lands. She illuminates how the “re-indigenization” movement is inspiring a
commitment to reciprocal relationships with place as well as collaborative
partnerships among peoples and landscapes.
