Earth Day Weekend Walk: Etuaptmumk

April 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm

Etuaptmumk is a Mi’kmaw saying that translates to “Two-Eyed Seeing.” This concept refers to learning how to see from one eye the strengths of traditional indigenous knowledge, and from the other eye the strengths of Western scientific knowledge. Two-Eyed Seeing can lead to powerful collaborative work between Native and Non-Native people with the goal of leaving the world a better place for future generations. In recognition of Earth Day, join IAIS Education Director Darlene Kascak, Schaghticoke Tribal Nation, and IAIS Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf for an ecology walk along our museums trails. Following the walk, participate in a discussion in our Replicated Algonkian Village concerning how people can incorporate this “Two-Eyed Seeing” concept into their daily lives. Please wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.

Price of Participation: $15 for Adults, $13 for Seniors, $11 for children and $5 for Members.

Space is limited, pre-registration is required. Click here to register!
