Chapter 11 – Canadian Engineers

Indigenous thinkers reinvigorate STEM with traditional knowledge

CBC Unreserved Episode from October 29, 2021

“Indigenous knowledge is more than beads, drums and sweetgrass — it’s also science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). On this episode of Unreserved, we talk to several people reintegrating traditional knowledge into scientific discourse.”
