Reconciling Ways of Knowing
Indigenous Knowledge and Science
A TIMELY CONVERSATION OF NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE
Reconciling Ways of Knowing:
Indigenous Knowledge andScience
The Reconciling Ways of Knowing: Indigenous Knowledge and Science symposium provides a timely opportunity to build greater understanding between the Western scientific and Indigenous knowledge paradigms, to better incorporate Indigenous knowledge into stewardship policy and decision-making processes; ensure the ability of our lands, waters, and resources to provide for us now and for generations to come; and build a relationship amongst Indigenous Peoples and Canada in which the different ways of being and knowing are equitably recognized and respected and better positioned to work together for mutual benefit into the future.

A significant factor in this event’s tremendous success is its appeal to leaders from so many different disciplines.
The conference will draw a national audience of local elected officials and city and county staff; state and federal agency leaders; professionals in planning, transportation, public health, landscape architecture, architecture, public works, parks and recreation, and crime prevention and the arts; realtors, developers, builders and bankers; advocates for equity and environmental justice, youth, older adults, and walking and biking; labor representatives; school leaders and staff; environmentalists; and all others committed to building safer, healthier and more livable communities everywhere.
Along with our keynote speakers, Scientia will host a variety of discussion groups to discuss timely topics. These topics will span across species management, climate and energy, governance, land use and marine planning, education and food security.
