Now at the Mag Stand: Do we define the earth or does the earth define us? Robin Wall Kimmerer says that “The land knows us, even if we are lost.” In a time of extreme climate change, extreme consumption and mass migrations, we cannot continue to tell ourselves the same stories about the land. We need to tell ourselves a different story (or remember ones long lost) – one that honors and heals both the earth and ourselves. Gary Nabhan, ethnobiologist, calls this idea Restoryation. These new stories “can become a compass for us” in a time when everyone feels adrift and uncertain.
