Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS): Humans as a Keystone Species – Learning from Indigenous Land Management, Food Webs, and Ecosystems

Wednesday 22 Jul
- Wednesday 22 Jul




About this event

Indigenous land management practices and the food systems they uphold are more sophisticated and advanced than commonly understood. Join us for this free Noetic Global Gathering with IONS NextGen award winner, Lyla June, PhD, as she shares her doctoral research on the regional scale foodscapes cultivated by First Nations and the ways in which these impact our lives still today. We will explore how, through these practices, human beings can become a benevolent, and even essential, agent within the food webs and ecosystems that surround us.

About the Speaker:

Lyla June, PhD, is a poet, musician, human ecologist, public speaker, and community organizer of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne) and European lineages. She is a co-founder of The Taos Peace and Reconciliation Council, which works to heal intergenerational trauma and ethnic division in the northern New Mexico. She is also the founder of Regeneration Festival, an annual celebration of children that occurs in 13 countries around the world every September.

She graduated with honors from Stanford University with a degree in Environmental Anthropology, holds a masters degree from the University of New Mexico with a concentration in American Indian Education, and has recently earned her PhD from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
