Learning Format: Conversation
Indigenous led museum and nature-based projects generally include discussions of human connectivity to the land and non-human relatives. In this session we move beyond typical perspectives to explore a spectrum of projects that teach about our connectivity to the natural world, some inside, some out, some that engage visitors through conventional museum practice and some with no interpretation at all—rooting people to place and centering narratives of Native relationships with land by highlighting health, balance and reciprocation—elucidating Native values and knowledge related to the land and ultimately the rationale for “land back” efforts.
