Roots Of Wisdom

September 17, 2022 - January 1, 2023

The Powerhouse • 1295 Camino Del Rio, Durango, CO 81301

Event Description

Overcoming environmental and cultural challenges can make for unexpected partnerships that result in extraordinary outcomes. At Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science, The Powerhouse’s latest exhibit opening September 17, 2022, the knowledge of native peoples and cutting-edge Western science are explored, providing insight into how we can improve our relationship with the natural world.

Roots of Wisdom features stories from four indigenous communities, giving visitors real life examples of how traditional knowledge and Western science, together, provide complementary solutions to ecological and health challenges facing us today. Through the voices of elders and youth, engaging video interactives and hands-on games, visitors will gather resources, examine data, and take part in the growing movement towards sustainability and the reclamation of age-old practices.

Roots of Wisdom is brought to The Powerhouse through the first round of funding from the Lodger’s Tax: Arts and Culture.
