Indigenous Knowledge in Coastal Resilience

With this workshop, our research team seeks to promote scholarly and practice-oriented contributions rooted in knowledge sharing around experiences with climate adaptation and relocation. Participants will include members of the Isle de Jean Charles, LA band of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribe, members of the Yupik people from Newtok, AK, and scholars working on resettlement issues from DUSP, the Lowlander Center, Louisiana, and elsewhere. More broadly, this workshop will provide an opportunity for dialogue and knowledge sharing to better scope out the challenges to equitable relocation planning and the opportunities for uncovering latent and unaddressed values in the planning process.
