2022 National Traditional Ecological Knowledge Summit

May 10 - May 12

May 10-12, 2022

The 2022 National Traditional Ecological Knowledge Summit is scheduled for May 10-12, 2022. The Summit is a student-led and student-organized conference, originally planned for Spring of 2021 and subsequently postponed until 2022 as a result of Covid-19. This conference will be held entirely virtually to maximize attendance numbers, and the conference is free for all participants.

The Summit will create space for a large audience of Indigenous peoples, representatives from various Tribal Nations, Indigenous and allied scholars, and much more.

The Summit will provide an opportunity for folks around the nation (centering Indigenous attendees) to learn from Indigenous Knowledge holders, Elders, and scholars in a respectful platform. It will additionally be an opportunity to celebrate and hold space within our communities for Indigenous music, ceremony, and Indigenous epistemologies (knowledges), and ontologies (ways of being).

A list of our financial sponsors will be added to this page soon.

See below for registration link and our open calls for abstracts. Stay tuned for the conference schedule!
