Location: Eiteljorg Museum

In Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants, author and scientist Robin Wall Kimmerer says, “For all of us, becoming Indigenous to a place means living as if your children’s future mattered, to take care of the land as if our lives, both material and spiritual, depended on it.” In her writings, Kimmerer brings both her scientific knowledge as botanist and indigenous wisdom as an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation to ask and answer questions about our relationships with the more-than-human world. Through these lenses, she asks readers to envision a more reciprocal relationship with the earth, grounded in listening and learning from the plants that surround us.

Offered as part of Indiana Humanities’ Unearthed programming, a multiyear initiative encouraging Hoosiers to discover and discuss their relationships with the natural world, this special INconversation with Robin Wall Kimmerer will feature a reading followed by a moderated conversation with Felica Ahasteen-Bryant, Director of Purdue University’s Native American Educational and Cultural Center. The evening will wrap up with an audience Q&A and book signing opportunity. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

This program is presented by Natalie Clayton, co-founder & broker, Maywright Property Co. Support has also been provided by Eiteljorg Museum and the Religion, Spirituality, and the Arts Program of the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute.

ASL interpretation will be provided.
