The tribe depicted in the photo below I think is a great example of how nature and the human spirit are related. it's hard to tell in the photos but in real life the display had a number of items and symbols found throughout the natural world. The text displays also gave a number of examples of how nature tied into these peoples' beliefs, ceremonies, and lives. It seemed very obvious how big a part of these peoples' lives nature and the natural world was, especially considering back then they didn't really consider there being another option. It made me realize that, even today, having a good relationship with the natural world is a very important part of a healthy person's life. More generally, the museum made me appreciate all the work and beauty in even the small things around me and in this beautiful state. I feel the Natural History museums (and museums more generally) are here to remind us of our origins and where we all come from not just because it's interesting to know but because whether someone likes it or not, one's past is a huge part of their personal identity and their lives. You can't simply ignore or erase the past, to the contrary, one should take pride in their history and embrace it and learn from it. Obviously this takes time and many people may not consider it fun or interesting however understanding where you come from is a vital part of understanding yourself. History connects us to traditions, lifestyles, and stories that are bigger than ourselves. Learning about our history and the world around us helps us not only appreciate what we now have and our lifestyles, but when one has this understanding it allows you to see just how incredible some of the little things in our daily lives and the natural world are.
