Kat High on Establishing Native Gardening Areas in Local Communities
The knowledge of native people about plants and their uses is open to everyone if they are willing to learn. Hoopa tribe descendant, Kat High, talks about the need to establish gardening areas in local communities.
Co-produced by KCETLink Media Group and the Autry Museum, this six-part multimedia series and one-hour documentary special are presented in association with California Continued, a groundbreaking exhibition now on view at the Autry.
Tending the Wild shines light on the environmental knowledge of indigenous peoples across California by exploring how they have actively shaped and tended the land for millennia, in the process developing a deep understanding of plant and animal life. This series examines how humans are necessary to live in balance with nature and how traditional practices can inspire a new generation of Californians to tend their environment.
