SE – Book Study on Braiding Sweetgrass

February 3, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Book Study on Braiding Sweetgrass, by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Dr. Kimmerer presents this book as a gift of braided stories “meant to heal our relationship with the world” by weaving together the three strands of “indigenous ways of knowing, scientific knowledge, and the story of an Anishinabekwe scientist trying to bring them together in service to what matters most.” That is, the necessity for humankind to be rejoined with its relationships to nature, and to understand the implications of the Earth’s gifts and our responsibility to return these gifts. The book is filled with poignant stories of the natural world and of loss and a hopeful challenge to humankind to restore the gifts of Mother Earth and the balance that once was.
