As a botanist and professor of plant ecology, Robin Wall Kimmerer has spent a profession studying easy methods to ask questions of nature utilizing the instruments of science. As a Potawatomi girl, she discovered from elders, household, and historical past that the Potawatomi, in addition to a majority of different cultures indigenous to this land, think about crops and animals to be our oldest lecturers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of understanding collectively to disclose what it means to see people as “the youthful brothers of creation”. As she explores these themes, she circles towards a central argument: The awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgement and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the world. As soon as we start to pay attention for the languages of different beings, we will start to know the innumerable life-giving presents the world offers us and study to supply our thanks, our care, and our personal presents in return.
