Local ecosystems around the world face serious environmental challenges. Many Native communities have found innovative solutions by combining traditional knowledge with modern science. Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science features stories of ecological and cultural restoration from the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, Tulalip Tribes, Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, and Native Hawaiians.

Roots of Wisdom Exhibition at Columbia Gorge Discovery Center

The exhibition is the result of a collaboration among the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Indigenous Education Institute, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and four Native community partners. The communities generously shared their restoration stories and their voices throughout the exhibition.

Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science was developed, produced, and circulated by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. The exhibition was made possible with funds provided by the National Science Foundation.
