Sweetgrass wisdom and meditations for the planet

Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is an exceptional book. It reads more like a meditation or series of meditations on the Indigenous wisdom, science, botany and plants. If you are interested in the climate and the future of the planet than this is a must read.

I read this book as part of Just Faith Ministries, Sacred Land Food and Farming class I’ve been taking in the past six weeks. There is so much wisdom in this book. There is so much we can learn from the indigenous ancestors that is relevant for today.

“For all of us, becoming indigenous to a place means living as if your children’s future mattered, to take care of the land as if our lives, both material and spiritual, depended on it.” – Robin Wall Kimmerer.
