About This Event

The Sweet Breathing of Plants

Tending the Wild, Documentary Screening & Discussion

with Barbara Drake, Kat High, and Richard Bugbee

Tuesday, November 20, 7 – 9pm






“Tending the Wild shines light on the environmental knowledge of indigenous peoples across California by exploring how they have actively shaped and tended the land for millennia, in the process developing a deep understanding of plant and animal life. This documentary examines how humans are necessary to live in balance with nature and how traditional practices can inspire a new generation of Californians to tend their environment.”    —KCET

The panelists will discuss indigenous cultural relationships with plants, food, art and life. This screening is the third in a series of programs that is part of The Sweet Breathing of Plants, Indigenous Arts of the Neshkinukat Artists exhibit on view in the Arboretum Library October 6, 2018 – December 21, 2018.
