Native Lifeways on the Greenways

The Great Rivers Greenway network of greenways throughout the St. Louis region are located on land stewarded by Native American people throughout generations. The relationship between Native American people and the ancestral land endures and contributes to the vitality of the region today. These native people had relationships with the plants, pollinators and wildlife within our region.

Great Rivers Greenway partnered with the Missouri Humanities Council to produce a series of short videos that highlight the interconnection between people, land, waterways, plants and pollinators. Each of these Native Lifeways on the Greenways videos focus on a different greenway and the surrounding native plant life. View each of these videos below:
