Yoshi Ota presents his work with the Nereus ProgramOn April 3rd, 2018 the University of Washington Exposures, Disease, Genomics, and Environment Center and Superfund Research Program co-hosted a workshop to chart a plan for the ongoing sharing of Indigenous and western-based sciences to support local communities in the development of strategic adaptation and action plans.

Tribal elders, scientists, students, and administrators helped translate dialog into action. Presentations ranged from oceanography to anthropology and included a live reading of a script created from interviews with local farmers, ranchers and tribal members involved in a dispute about water rights in the Skagit Valley.
