A free five-part series of discussions of the book Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

The book, published by Milkweed Editions, is about the world of botany as described and explored through Native American traditions. Kimmerer, who is a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, also shares stories about her own experiences working with plants and learning to become reunited with her own people's cultural traditions. She also gives a background on history in relation to plants and also discusses botany through a scientific perspective.

The book is available at Russell's, Munro's and Bolen books as well as the Greater Victoria Public Library.
