"Indigenous knowledge, unlike Western science and technology, has tenets of sacredness and spirituality. These ideas directly affect our relationship to and interaction with nature and one another. Thus, we are not just invisible, objective observers but actual and accountable participants in the complex web of life. Learning that plants have spirits may not mean much to a research scientist or technophile. It will, however, have an effect on the way we, as Anishinaabe, interact with plants."

Gnarly crowns abound
Ancient ones in dark glens stand
Mystery beckons

On March 14, 2010 The Eastern Native Tree Society and Western Native Tree Society switched from discussion lists on Google Groups to a new discussion list in a Bulletin Board format at: http://www.ents-bbs.org/index.php  Posts made since the inception of the BBS on march 14, 2010 will be sorted and archived on the BBS. Click on the link above to go to the equivalent section on the new BBS. This website will continue to serve as a front end for the ENTS and WNTS groups. It will continue to serve as a repository of older posts, and will serve as the host site for special projects and features that are not well suited for a BBS format. Please visit the BBs for the latest information and trip reports.


Note:  The following are an archive of material that has been posted to the ENTStrees list. If the author of an individual post objects to its inclusion in this archive, then please contact the webmaster and that post will be deleted, or all posts from that individual can be deleted.  A complete archive of these materials is posted at http://lists.topica.com and is available to all subscribers of the ENTStrees list.
