Join Joseph Pitawanakwat on a journey through Anishinaabek Mishkiki Aadiziwin (Anishinaabek knowledge of plant medicines). What are the species that surround us? What names do they carry? And, what do these names tell us about the long-standing ecological traditions of Anishinaabek peoples across Turtle Island? Joseph has spent nearly 12 years working in communities all across Canada and the United States sharing the knowledge passed down to him from his grandmother. These teachings hold great value, not only to Indigenous cultures, but to all those who call Anishinaabek aki (Anishinaabek land) home.
