The Museum of History & Industry’s (MOHAI) permanent exhibit, True Northwest: The Seattle Journey, traverses through the real Seattle story: from an age when Native American cultures first came into contact with Europeans to the region’s transformation into a major global hub.

Find out how the city rebuilt after a devastating fire, made a fortune in a legendary gold rush, reshaped its natural setting, boomed during two World Wars and two World’s Fairs, and challenged the status quo in the 20th century.

Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science.

Overcoming centuries of environmental and cultural challenges can make for unexpected partnerships that result in extraordinary outcomes. In Roots of Wisdom, stories from four Indigenous communities are brought to life in real-world examples of how traditional knowledge and cutting-edge science can be blended together to provide complementary solutions to contemporary concerns. From restoring ecosystems to rediscovering traditional foods and crafts, the exhibit invites guests to understand the important issues that Indigenous cultures face, discover innovative ways native peoples are problem-solving and contributing to the growing movement towards sustainability and the reclamation of age-old practices. On view at Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) from October 7, 2023 – March 3, 2024, Roots of Wisdom provides examples of how traditional knowledge and science together create complementary solutions to contemporary concerns. Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge, Shared Science was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The exhibit was made possible with funds provided by the National Science Foundation.
