Where the Cornell Plantations now stand, the Haudenosaunee have told a story about the creation of Earth and of the local biome for thousands of years.  Richly detailing the relationships between many of the indigenous plant species now growing on the Plantations’ grounds, the story as richly illustrates the breakdown of these relationships during periods of ecological crisis, and the strategies human beings adopt in response.  Join us for a conversation about how the strategies – biological, psycho-social, and economic – presented in this ancient narrative speak to current global approaches to negotiating human responses to climate change.
