Reverence for the Land

Potawatomi Naturalist Robin Wall Kimmerer, in her beautiful book “Braiding Sweetgrass,” connects the ancient wisdom of her ancestors to the emerging science of ecology.  It turns out that understanding the land and all those who live in and on it requires a certain measure of reverence.  Even more so must we have deep reverence for the Land to make a more just and sustainable future.  On this Indigenous People’s Day weekend, we will turn to Indigenous people’s urgent plea to attend with reverence to this, our collective home.
