White House Memorandum on Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge

Larry Hinzman November 16, 2021

Today, OSTP and CEQ release a first-of-its-kind Memorandum on Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge! The Memo includes an acknowledgement of the importance of Indigenous Knowledge and a commitment by the White House to collaborate with Tribal Nations and Indigenous Peoples around Indigenous Knowledge in Federal Decisionmaking. This is the first time that Indigenous Knowledge has been elevated to the White House in such a broad and comprehensive way.


President Biden will be announcing the Indigenous Knowledge effort in his speech to the Biden-Harris Administration’s inaugural Tribal Nations Summit, happening today and tomorrow. You can tune into the livestream here: https://www.youtube.com/usinterior
