Traditional Ecological knowledge, Wild Horses and Rewilding

Cana foundation has the utmost respect and regard for Indigenous Nations and their Traditional Ecological Knowledge TEK. Cana Foundation is actively seeking partnerships with these invaluable peoples and their Traditional Ecological knowledge to create rewilding projects with wild horses so together we can create sustainable environmental systems through wild horse grazing.
What is Traditional Ecological Knowledge and why is it important?
Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) is the on-going accumulation of knowledge, practice and belief about relationships between living beings in a specific ecosystem that is acquired by indigenous people over hundreds or thousands of years through direct contact with the environment, handed down through generations, and used for life-sustaining ways. This knowledge includes the relationships between people, plants, animals, natural phenomena, landscapes, and timing of events for activities such as hunting, fishing, trapping, agriculture, and forestry. It encompasses the world view of a people, which includes ecology, spirituality, human and animal relationships, and more.
Cana Foundations groundbreaking Sustainability Initiatives will offer permanent homes to Wild Horses while they are valued and respected, and helping to sequester Carbon through building grassland.
