Integrating rivercane as Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge into the Southeast Conservation Blueprint

by Levi West, Alyssa Quan, and Jennifer Byram, SECAS Rivercane Fellows

This summer, SECAS welcomed a group of three fellows working on rivercane. Rivercane (Arundinaria gigantea) is a bamboo plant native to the Southeastern United States that has played a major role in sustaining cultural practices and ecological systems for many Indigenous communities since time immemorial. Though canebrakes were once prolific throughout the Southeast, today this species and the ecosystems it created have been reduced to approximately 2% of their pre-colonization land area. Throughout this project, the fellows have been working to promote rivercane conservation by working alongside partners to establish a collaborative model, build educational materials, and document a plan for spatial modeling to build a strong foundation for future SECAS work in rivercane.
