Changes We Have Seen: Traditional Knowledge Proceedings from the 2008 SACNAS National Conference
The 2008 SACNAS National Conference was one of the largest International Polar Year focused events in the world, with nearly 2,400 attendees.
Not only was the “International Polar Year: Global Change in Our Communities” meeting a unique and powerful opportunity to support the best and brightest minority science students, but it was also an important dialogue among Native elders, traditional knowledge holders, polar science researchers, and scientists of all disciplines regarding the health of the poles, polar peoples, global climate concerns, and the ways that we can all make positive contributions to the sustainability of our planet.
Changes We Have Seen captures some of the most important dialogue on traditional knowledge and climate change from this historic conference.
Whether you’re a student presenting research & connecting with mentors or a professional giving back to the next generation, membership means taking part in something greater than yourself. With SACNAS, you're part of a community of scientists; you belong.
