How are knowledge systems passed down over generations? Through the knowledge inherited from their Elders and ancestors, Indigenous Peoples throughout North America have observed, practiced, experimented, and interacted with plants, animals, the sky, and the waters over millennia. Knowledge keepers have shared their wisdom with younger people through oral history, stories, ceremonies, and records that took many forms. This book explores how Indigenous knowledge comes from centuries of practices, experiences, and ideas gathered by people who have a long history with the natural world.
