Description

It’s time for a new Seedcast Spotlight episode. This time we’re sharing an episode from the podcast On Being with Krista Tippett featuring mother, scientist, and professor Robin Wall Kimmerer, an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. 

"In Indigenous ways of knowing, we say that we know a thing when we know it not only with our physical senses, with our intellect, but also when we engage our intuitive ways of knowing — of emotional knowledge and spiritual knowledge,” says Robin Wall Kimmerer in this episode. “Traditional knowledge engages us in listening.”
 

Robin was just named a 2022 MacArthur Fellow. Her books Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants and Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses interweave traditional knowledge and scientific knowledge, showing the gifts that each has to offer.  

In this episode, she shares stories of her personal relationship to the worlds of plants, how they teach us to live within our means and how we can apply those lessons to everyday life.  

We'd like to thank On Being host Krista Tippett, senior producer Julie Siple, and On Being Project Vice President of Operations and Vitality Colleen Scheck for their generosity in entering into this collaboration with us.  

Seedcast is a production of Nia Tero, a global nonprofit which supports Indigenous land guardianship around the world through policy, partnership, and storytelling initiatives.
