Native American Programs


Dr. Robin Kimmerer

This presentation will explore on our relationship to plants and how it is shaped by culture, worldview and experience. Together, we will explore scientific and indigenous conceptions of the nature of plants, from natural resources and respected teachers to consider how our perceptions of living beings are reflected in language and law.
