Notes from Wisdom’s Executive Director
Hello and season greetings,
I want to take this time to thank all of our partners, supporters, and funders for a very successful and engaging year. Graduates for our Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge (ITEK) Internships have joined our Wisdom Workforce Development, LLC Crew or have found positions working with our partners while some have moved on to increase their opportunities in the field by furthering their schooling.
To all of you, thank you for walking with us in our important work, we wish you continued success! If you are interested in joining one of our twice-yearly ITEK Internships be sure to get in touch to register for either the Spring or Fall sessions. In addition, please note we will also be offering internships for our Multi-Media Program that in the Spring. If you or anyone you know are interested in learning
aspects of film production, please get in touch with us.
As we continue to increase our partnership with Open Signal, we will be creating new films, documentaries, and footage from our Environmental Restoration and Conservation team’s fieldwork. In the meantime, you can view some already produced and shown on OPB. This year we have received a great deal of support from our community members and our funders. For this, we are always delighted and full of gratitude as each one of you has contributed to our success. From our team to you, we wish you each a pleased and prosperous New Year.
