Living Landscapes Climate Science Project

From Salish Kootenai College in Montana comes the Living Landscapes Climate Science Project, a place- and culture-based educational curriculum that integrates "traditional knowledge (native science) and current climate science research." This unique resource offers a comprehensive set of climate science teaching and learning materials. The most prominent components are two college-level online courses, one of which is an introductory course organized into nine units or "Essential Principles" that use both Western science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge to teach climate science literacy, while the second course is more advanced and focuses on remote sensing. Other resources include a series of 10 short videos highlighting the impacts of climate change on a tribal community and a learning unit for high school students, along with labs, tools, and ample supporting materials for educators. First-time visitors should begin by viewing the three brief video tutorials for a tour of the project's numerous materials. While this robust collection of resources may be of particular interest to Native communities, non-tribal students and educators would also benefit from them. Developed in partnership with the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab, the Living Landscapes Project was funded through an award from NASA's MAIANSE initiative for Tribal Colleges and Universities.
