CGS 085 PZ -(Re)Learning Love for the Land


Institution: Pitzer

Description: The failure of colonial settlers to respect the land has resulted in global cultural and climate changes with large scale destructive impacts, including nearly complete devastation of indigenous subsistence and knowledge practices. This course introduces ways that Indigenous peoples past and present practice constructive, reciprocal relations with animal and plant inhabitants on the land, seas, and skies through readings and concrete practices. Meetings with indigenous community members practicing love for the land combined with field encounters with southern California native plants will open up ways to live out love for the land again. While the course focuses on California, students will also explore human-land relations in their own heritages and other sites.
