Overcoming centuries of environmental and cultural challenges can make for unexpected partnerships that result in extraordinary outcomes. In Roots of Wisdom, stories from four Indigenous communities are brought to life in real-world examples of how traditional knowledge and cutting-edge science can be blended together to provide complementary solutions to contemporary concerns. From restoring ecosystems to rediscovering traditional foods and crafts, the exhibit invites guests to understand the important issues that Indigenous cultures face, discover innovative ways native peoples are problem-solving and contributing to the growing movement towards sustainability and the reclamation of age-old practices. On view at Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) from October 7, 2023 – March 3, 2024, Roots of Wisdom provides examples of how traditional knowledge and science together create complementary solutions to contemporary concerns.
