Maine Public highlights UMaine role in Center for Braiding Indigenous Knowledges and Science

Maine Public reported on University of Maine faculty to devise new ways to tackle threats to their food supplies and the potential destruction of historically and culturally significant places through a new research center based at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. UMaine will serve as the Northeast hub for the new Center for Braiding Indigenous Knowledges and Science (CBIKS) at UMass Amherst. The Northeast hub of CBIKS at UMaine is one of eight regional hubs spread over different regions of the U.S., as well as in Australia and the Pacific Islands.”This is kind of bringing together our best knowledges in different circles for the benefit of all,” said Bonnie Newsom, a co-principal investigator for the project and associate professor of anthropology at the University of Maine.
