ANTH 208 - Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Cultural Survival

Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) is an integrated body of spiritual and practical thought related to cultural ecological adaptation. We look at ways societies categorize TEK domains, including plants, animals, landscapes, and kin. We also examine the relationship of worldview and language to environment, as it is increasingly apparent that cultural survival and diversity directly relate to biological diversity.
