“The story of our relationship to the earth is written more truthfully on the land than on the page. It lasts there. The land remembers what we said and what we did.” –Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass 341 (Milk-weed 2013)

“The land and the wealth that began in it still carry the shape of history. . . . The land remembers. But what do we remember of it? Every political contest over claims on the land is, in part, a contest over what will be remembered and what will be forgotten.” –Jedediah Purdy, This Land Is Our Land: The Struggle for a New Commonwealth xvii (Princeton 2019)
