Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) refers to the evolving knowledge acquired by indigenous people over time through direct contact with the environment. Dr. Chuck Stead who was lead investigator on a major Ford Motor Company clean-up in the Ramapo Watershed working with the Ramapough Lunaape Munsee Nation has encouraged a return to traditional pathways of recovery for both the community and the land. Dr. Stead’s forthcoming book Get the Lead Out chronicles the dual journey of land stewardship and a community in recovery. In partnership with the Sierra Club Lower Hudson Group. Free event!
