Tribal Reciprocity and Connections

Coeur d’Alene Tribe Coeur D'Alene Tribe Team

For several years, Dr. Mažeika Patricio Sullivan has been working with the Schitsu’umsh people of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, who reside in current day northern Idaho. This work has focused on water rights as they relate to traditional Coeur d’Alene Tribal uses of lakes, streams, and wetlands including hunting, gathering, and fishing. Recently, Dr. Sullivan and the Coeur d’Alene Tribe have submitted a proposal focused on building drought-resilience capacity on the Coeur d’Alene Reservation, where Dr. Sullivan has spent about a month and half each of the past few years.

Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program

Broadening participation in environmental science is a key goal of The Ohio State University and the School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR), and critical for successful natural-resources management.

As such, the School of Environment and Natural Resources and  the Olentangy River Wetland Reserach Park take part in Ohio State’s LSAMP (Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation) – an NSF bridge program aimed at increasing underrepresented minorities in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) degrees.

Multiple Native American students have participated in our Integrated Water Science class.
