SUNY ESF Digital Media Intern (2+ possible positions)
State University of New York-College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF), SDI and Menominee Tribal Enterprises (MTE) collaborated on the Learning From the Land Project (LFTL) funded by a USDA NIFA grant.

The program included four integrated elements: collaborative development of new cross-cultural Forest Ecology course, undergraduate research experience as a “bridge to the baccalaureate” from tribal college to ESF, training in forest ecology for Native graduate students and a national workshop to disseminate models for integration of indigenous and scientific knowledge in forest ecology and climate change. The digital media intern will be responsible for the creation on three educational videos based on this project, including documentary-style videos to capture ideas and recommendations provided by participants at the Learning from the Land national workshop held at College of Menominee Nation in June 2016.
