An Indigenous/Science UBC Research Cluster event:
Converging or Contradictory Ways of Knowing: The Scientific Nature of Traditional Knowledge
As social and archaeological anthropologists, George, Julie and Karen work at the intersections of different ways of knowing. Western and Indigenous approaches to interpreting, communicating and valuing knowledge share much in common, including a scientific aspect, but they also contain meaningful differences.
