HOT TOPIC - Preserving the Land

The native peoples of our Midwest region were well aware of their surroundings, the earth, the waterways, and the sky. The indigenous people who lived in the region that is now Missouri were much more sensitive to the needs of their environment. Over thousands of years they developed a sophisticated symbiotic relationship with their Mother, the Earth. And, as we move into cooler temperatures and watch our beautiful changing landscape, it's good to know and thank the Indigenous stewards, our American Indian friends and relatives, of the Midwest region.
