2. Rose Bear Don’t Walk, “Patterns, Plants, and People” Some of most staggering achievements in science have happened because someone was able to look into the chaotic mess of information the world presents us and see the hidden order beneath it – see a pattern. The ability to look for and find patterns is central to science not just as we now think of it, but to how humans have understood and interacted with our environment for millenia. This episode features Rose Bear Don’t Walk, an ethnobotanist who explains how her Bitterroot Salish and Crow heritage inform her scientific work, and how recovering traditional knowledge of plants and patterns is key to preserving culture and improving health in indigenous communities.
