For Indigenous peoples in North America, the Grizzly is a teacher. Their knowledge strengthens our relationship with the land, guides our stewardship, and offers insights into our own humanity. By observing a society so outwardly different from our own, through reverence and kinship, we grow closer to finding our place within the whole.
We all are students, custodians, and change-makers. Our efforts will form the future of our world. As a keystone species, saving the Grizzly and conserving their habitat not only creates sustainable natural landscapes, but helps to enrich our own lives as co-inhabitants of our shared lands.
Grizzly Bears: Teachers of the Land is a partnership between the Bateman Foundation and the Grizzly Bear Foundation: a unique exhibition that explores the lessons often lacking in the Western understanding of this majestic creature.
We invite you to see from multiple perspectives – to step outside of yourselves and become part of something bigger.
The exhibit is currently open to the public, but still in progress. Be one of the first to experience it as we build it!
