Grim: Indigenous ‘lifeways’ can inform modern understanding of the universe

John Grim’s Tuesday Interfaith Lecture brought the cosmological stories of indigenous peoples into a dialogue with “Journey of the Universe,” a documentary film dedicated to revealing the intimate interdependence and creativity of the universe.

A senior research scholar at Yale University, Grim co-produced “The Journey of the Universe” alongside his wife and colleague Mary Evelyn Tucker, who spoke about the film at Monday’s Interfaith Lecture. Grim has studied a variety of Native American cultures, especially how they conceptualize their relationships with the land and the cosmos.
