The Problem

The Tribal Youth Ambassadors of the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center are engaging GIS as a technological tool to revitalize California tribal cultures, create strategies that address food sovereignty, identify and monitor cultural resources and create public educational resources.

Our Plan

We work with tribal community elders and culture bearers to document language and tribal ecological knowledge using GIS. We are weaving native cultures into the future!
