Healing Relationships with the Natural World with Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer

Thursday, May 27, 2021, 11:00 PM - 12:30 AM

The Wege Foundation will host the 24th annual Wege Speaker Series on Thursday, May 27 at 4pm. The flagship event took a hiatus last year due to the pandemic. This year’s event will be virtual.

Presenting is Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer, renowned author, educator and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. Her latest book, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, has earned critical acclaim. As a scientist, Dr. Kimmerer’s interests include the restoration of ecological communities and the rejuvenation of human relationships to land.

New this year, the first 200 registrants will have the opportunity to receive a signed, discounted copy of Dr. Kimmerer’s book.
