James Rattling Leaf, Sr. will speak on his experiences as a cultural intelligence consultant with a specialty in tribal/indigenous ways of knowing. He specializes in developing programs that utilize the interface between indigenous people's traditional knowledge and western science. Mr. Rattling Leaf will discuss his tribal heritage as a means to strengthen his Tribe through education---focusing on community, economic, and human development while preserving the Lakota values and heritage. Also, he will discuss his efforts with students to enhance their geoscience experience by developing funding, finding scholarships, and providing mentoring and internship opportunities, such as those that investigate the difference in land use and cover between two buffalo pastures and an un-grazed control site using remote sensing technology.
