Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria
OAEC and the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria (FIGR) collaborate on a series of training programs for the FIGR Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo tribal members from around the Bay Area.
- We lead a series of three-day workshops at OAEC for FIGR members young and old on Traditional Environmental Knowledge (TEK). Together we explore principles of ecology, traditional environmental wisdom, and native ﬂora and fauna with the goal of becoming better practitioners of cultural regeneration and biological restoration.
- OAEC and FIGR also work together on public education events and a project to develop organic community gardens in the city of Rohnert Park here in Sonoma County.
