Ecology

For Myaamia people, ecology and history are often connected. This is reflected in our stories and knowledge of how we lived and continue to live where relationships between humans, plants, animals, landscapes, and the changing seasons are linked. Our goal is to assist Myaamia people in weaving this knowledge into their contemporary lives.
