ROBIN KIMMERER

“Reclaiming the Honorable Harvest”

Robin Kimmerer is a botanist, a writer and member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. She teaches in the Department of Environment and Forest Biology at SUNY-ESF, where she is the director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment. She is active in efforts to respectfully bring the wisdom of traditional ecological knowledge together with the tools of western science for our shared concerns for sustainability.

Her talk, "Reclaiming the Honorable Harvest: Indigenous Knowledge for a Sustainable Future," examines ways in which traditional indigenous approaches to the environment and harvest as practiced by the Potawatomi can teach us valuable lessons about healing our own relationship to the living earth.
