As a botanist and professor of plant ecology, Robin Wall Kimmerer has spent a career learning how to ask questions of nature using the tools of science. As a Potawatomi woman, she learned from elders, family, and history that the Potawatomi, as well as a majority of other cultures indigenous to this land, consider plants and animals to be our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowing together to reveal what it means to see humans as "the younger brothers of creation." As she explores these themes, she circles toward a central argument: The awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgement and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the world. Once we begin to listen for the languages of other beings, we can begin to understand the innumerable life-giving gifts the world provides us and learn to offer our thanks, our care, and our own gifts in return.… (més)

The overly ornate poetics got in the way of the message for me. I know this is not the case for everyone. I listened to this as an audiobook, maybe it would be different if it were my voice in my head reading it, not the author's. But the narrative seemed a bit weighed down by the florid prose at times, to the effect that I lost the thread of her arguments. I'd be able to pick it back up when it veered more toward memoir or science, history or folklore, but it happened frequently enough in such a large piece of work to be distracting. ( )

(Partly listened as an audiobook narrated by the author)
As an ecologist and member of the Potawatomi Nation, Kimmerer balances the native science she has learned from her ancestors’ stories with the science she researches and teaches. This book is full of short stories and essays examining different plants, animals, ecosystems, etc. She focuses on Native knowledge that has been lost or ignored by non-Native people in power, but also includes personal stories about saving salamanders in vernal pools with her daughter, ethically cleaning out a pond in her yard, and taking freshman university students camping. Very philosophical overall.

This book is not a panacea, however. It has lots of big ideas that are worth consideration but provides only individual solutions to what are societal problems (climate change, human/animal conflict, poverty, etc.) I enjoyed it most when I was listening to the audiobook and could just enjoy the stories instead of scrutinizing the larger implications of every idea.

4.5 stars. It was really good, just long for me to listen to. It was read by the author, so that was very cool. I love the Native American stories and how different they are from what I grew up with. I love how she created a life for her and her daughters at a pond while still honoring the life in the pond. I was quite captivated. ( )

Kimmerer, a member of the Potawatomi Nation and a professor of environmental biology, presents here a collection of breathtaking essays on nature and indigenous lore — from ponds, maple sugar and sweetgrass to environmental devastation and restoration — all of which connect in some fashion to her own life and work.

This is a book for science and nature lovers, and I suspect it could turn just about any reader into an appreciator of nature. The pace is quite slow, so it's the type of book that would benefit from being read a little at a time. Unfortunately, that isn't typically how I read, so I did rather plow straight through and therefore likely didn't absorb it and appreciate it to the fullest, so that's on me. I selected this book for Read Harder category "a book in any genre by a POC that’s about joy and not trauma," despite being uncertain whether it would be a good fit. Though the author refers to traumatic events to provide background, the book's mood and tone are decidedly those of wonderment and joy. It was full of surprises and "wow" moments. I especially appreciated the excerpts of traditional storytelling, marveling at the similarities across cultures (the Peacemaker sure sounds an awful lot like Jesus!). ( )

[Preface] Hold out your hands and let me lay upon them a sheaf of freshly picked sweetgrass, loose and flowing, like newly washed hair.
She fell like a maple seed, pirouetting on an autumn breeze.
