New-Native ATEK Educator database coming soon!
Who are our New-Native ATEK Educators?
New-Native Educators across the United States inspire their communities to experience American Traditional Ecological Knowledge (ATEK) skills, hands-on. That's because we believe in the "embodiment of knowledge". When we interact with Nature's principles we inspire lasting impressions through real life experiences. These interactions are some of the most foundational experiences we can have as human beings. When we approach them with emphasis on ethics, they become lessons we can draw from, to educate each other and a Nation. Ultimately they are our own, drawn from life and not upon previous knowledge, borrowed or taken.
