      Knowing the Land: Indigenous Strategies for Revitalization and Adaptation, a Lecture by Clint Carroll

      This talk will addresses challenges that Indigenous Nations face regarding the interrelated processes of cultural knowledge revitalization and environmental adaptation. For example, how can methods for transmitting traditional knowledge and the management of local resources adapt to radically different social and environmental circumstances? How can tribal elders effectively communicate their knowledge and perspectives on pressing issues like the preservation of medicinal plants to tribal officials, youth, and the general tribal population? Based on my past and current work with Cherokee people in Oklahoma, I will explore possible strategies for overcoming such challenges, as well as current and future research endeavors that further seek to address political-ecological issues in the Cherokee Nation. Clint Carroll is Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado-Boulder. He received his doctorate from the University of California-Berkeley in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona in Anthropology, with a minor in American Indian Studies. A citizen of the Cherokee Nation, his work with Cherokee government officials and rural communities in northeastern Oklahoma explores how tribal natural resource management is informed by traditional forms of decision-making and local environmental knowledge. His first book, Roots of Our Renewal: Ethnobotany and Cherokee Environmental Governance(published in 2015 by the University of Minnesota Press), is an historical and ethnographic account of this work since 2004. Dr. Carroll has received fellowships from the Ford Foundation, the Udall Foundation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Science Foundation. He was also a 2014-2016 Fellow of the Native Investigator Development Program, funded by the National Institutes of Health. His work has been published in Ethnohistory, Geoforum, Environmental Research, and two edited collections. He is an active member of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association and the Society for Applied Anthropology.
