Plant Kin The Indigenous Canela inhabit a vibrant multispecies community of nearly 3,000 people and over 300 types of cultivated and wild plants living together in Maranh o State in the Brazilian Cerrado savannah , a biome threatened with deforestation and climate change In the face of these environmental threats, Canela women and men work to maintain riverbank and forest gardens and care for their growing crops, whom they consider to be, literally, children This nurturing, loving relationship between people and plants which offers a thought provoking model for supporting multispecies survival and well being throughout the world is the focus of Plant Kin.Theresa L Miller shows how kinship develops between Canela people and plants through intimate, multi sensory, and embodied relationships Using an approach she calls sensory ethnobotany, Miller explores the Canela bio sociocultural life world, including Canela landscape aesthetics, ethnobotanical classification, mythical storytelling, historical and modern day gardening practices, transmission of ecological knowledge through an education of affection for plant kin, shamanic engagements with plant friends and lovers, and myriad other human nonhuman experiences This multispecies ethnography reveals the transformations of Canela human environment and human plant engagements over the past two centuries and envisions possible futures for this Indigenous multispecies community as it reckons with the rapid environmental and climatic changes facing the Brazilian Cerrado as the Anthropocene epoch unfolds.
