Fire History as a Bridge Between Ecological Knowledge Systems Virtual Panel

Panel Discussion: Thursday, November 16, 2023, from 11am-12:30PM ET. 

Description: This panel discussion will explore how different types of fire history information (Indigenous Knowledge and physical archives), when considered together, provide improved context for understanding the ecologies and processes that are linked to the restoration and stewardship of fire-adapted communities. The panelists include Indigenous Knowledge holders and practitioners, and experts in tree-ring, sedimentary, and archeological fire history, who have collaboratively used fire history information to bridge cultures and knowledge systems. The discussion will use case studies in the Upper Great Lakes Region where a diverse set of partners wove these types of knowledge together to restore culture fire to the benefit of globally-rare pine barrens communities.

This virtual event is hosted by the Fueling Collaboration Panel Discussion Series, which connects fire managers and researchers. Panelists will include Dr. Evan Larson (Moderator), Dr. Kurt Kipfmueller, Dr. Elizabeth Lynch, Dr. Sean Dunham, Dr. Gregor Schuurman, Damon Panek, Dan Devault, and Marcie Gotchie.
