We are showered every day with the gifts of the Earth and yet we are tied to institutions which relentlessly ask what more can we take? Drawing upon both scientific and indigenous knowledges, this talk explores the covenant of reciprocity, how might we use the gifts and the responsibilities of human people in support of mutual thriving in a time of ecological crisis.
Guest speaker: Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer, State University of New York (SUNY), Distinguished Professor of Environmental Biology & Award-winning Author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teaching of Plants
