Description: Geoscience directly impacts environmental sustainability and
health and food sovereignty. The purpose of the proposed workshop is to bring together
Native American/Alaska Native (NA/AN) tribal communities, leaders, elders, and cultural
practitioners, faculty, students, geoscience and health professionals who engage in various
aspects of geoscience, food sovereignty, and human health to emphasize both the importance
geoscience plays in environmental sustainability and monitoring and the interconnectedness
of geoscience in food sovereignty and thus human health.
