I was able to hear a talk by Tim Ryan a CSKT member and owner of EthnoTech, dedicating to teaching and preserving his tribes ancestral way of life. He discussed tribal seasonal rounds and traditional tools as indigenous knowledge. I was fascinated to feel and tug on rope he made from the dogbane plant. It is exciting he can relate the cultural importance to one of the strongest fibers that is very useful. He spoke at a Wetlands to Watershed conference Janene was a part of, I’m glad I made time to make it on Monday because I learned great knowledge.
I hope to come across Tim agin in the future..he has tons to teach!
