Tending the Wild

A phenomenal multimedia series (2016) from KCET in Los Angeles, Tending the Wild shines a light on the environmental knowledge of indigenous peoples across California. The series explores how people have actively shaped the land for millennia with their relationship with the plants and trees of their ecosystems. On the website, videos and news stories illustrate a larger inquiry into the concepts and practices of traditional ecological knowledge. The series includes an introductory article titled "What is Traditional Ecological Knowledge?" by M. Kat Anderson—whose book, Tending the Wild, inspired the series.
