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.
