Learning from a Native perspective with Robin Wall Kimmerer

A moment with the forest.

Part of the root of human caused Climate Change is that we have forgotten what it means to be native. Much of the developed world lives as a conqueror might, giving little to no regard for their local surroundings. If contemporary citizens can reconnect with their surroundings and treat their environments from the perspective of being native, we could see a drastic shift in the impacts of each individual. We could save the world.
