"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."
