Lecture shares stories in cedar

A graduate student visiting Southeast Alaska from the University of Kent will share his work studying names in the region that incorporate Native words for cedar.

The lecture takes place at noon today in the Walter Soboleff Building.

In a research proposal explained by Sealaska Heritage Institute, Felipe Vasquez argues that traditional ecological knowledge could help humans adapt to climate change.

SHI is sponsoring the lecture, which is based on data compiled in “Our Grandparents’ Names on the Land,” a book published by SHI and University of Washington Press in 2012 that included more than 3,000 Native place names in Southeast.
