Traditional Perspectives and Tribal Resilience

Mead Public Library Talk
Tuesday, April 18, 2023 - 7:00pm to 8:15pm

On Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, WI, Sara Smith shared how changes in the environment disproportionately impact Tribal communities across the Nation. Many Indigenous communities depend upon a healthy environment for spiritual, ceremonial, medicinal, subsistence, and economic needs. Many Tribal Nations located in present-day Wisconsin maintain knowledge systems that relay interconnectedness with the environment and lifeways. This presentation touched on what traditional perspectives are and why they are important and vital to the environment in order to build resilience to the changes that are occurring.
