Michigan Tribes maintain important relationships with, and knowledges, on Michigan forests, seasons, and cycles. The Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan is facilitating a collaborative adaptation project with the Bay Mills Indian Community, Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe, Pokagon Band of Potawatomi, and Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, with assistance from Michigan Natural Features Inventory and the Northern Institute for Applied Climate Science. This project engages Anishinaabe and western science to: 1) better understand how five forest understory plants might respond to climate-driven change and 2) identify ways to support these plants on tribal lands and across the region. Project methods and initial findings will be shared.
