The Literature, Film, Drama and Music Contingent (LFDMC) will host the HIP group (Honoring Indigenous People) presentation of “Braiding Sweetgrass:  Healing Our Relationship with the World.”

Author, Robin Wall Kimmerer, is an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, botanist, distinguished professor, poet, mother and award-winning writer.  This best selling book (on the New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times best-seller lists) lives at the intersections of science and spirituality and of botany and environmentalism, frequently inviting the reader to stop and reflect, awakening our poetic souls and teaching us to be better stewards of the earth.

“…one occasionally encounters a text like an earthquake: it shakes one’s fundamental assumptions with a massive shift…Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass is one of these kinds of books.”  — Heather Sullivan, Journal of Germanic Studies

Flow of Presentation: HIP members will present selected readings from the book and pose questions that will engage the audience in discussion.  Members who were in HIP’s Spiritual Journey Book Read this summer will be invited to attend and discuss their experiences.  The presentation will also include a brief discussion of recommended actions, and, post-presentation, a list of these actions, along with other resources, will be sent out via the LFDMC email list.
