NMAI and Tribes Launch Environmental Website

September 13, 2011

Working in partnership with four Indian tribes, the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) has launched a website that demonstrates how tribes use traditional culture, values, and indigenous knowledge in combination with science and technology to tackle environmental issues. The site is designed to educate middle school and high school students and teachers and show visitors how American Indian communities are dealing with contemporary environmental and cultural issues. To learn more, visit the American Indian Responses to Environmental Challenges website.
