SOLD OUT! Hunting & Gathering Lecture Series: Seasonal Round
February 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree – $10
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
Join us for an exploration of hunting and gathering, from food and medicine to the naturalist’s habit of creating collections. Each of our six speakers will share their expertise, from identification and use of the object of the hunt to identifying the landscape or phenology clues that will help hunters and gatherers to find what they’re looking for.
Our first speaker is Rosalyn LaPier, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at UM and award-winning Indigenous writer. She studies the intersection of traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) learned from elders and environmental and religious history of Indigenous people. Join us for her lecture, Seasonal Round: Understanding the Landscape. She will discuss the “Seasonal Round” or the annual journey taken by the Blackfeet and other northern Plains tribes throughout their territory, share their knowledge of the natural world, places, plants, and animals and their relationship with the supernatural.
