About the Event
Join us for a hands-on exploration of culturally important indigenous plants! Respected Mohican herbalist Misty Cook and local ethnoecologist Justin Wexler will lead us through Waawtäawtheyakwe: Those That Sustain Us, a unique garden installation created at The Petronio Residency Center in a 2022 collaboration between Wild Hudson Valley and Hortulus Animae with the help and approval of the Stockbridge-Munsee Community’s language department and tribal council. Waawtäawtheyakwe features plants and growing methods that reflect traditional native culture and natural history in the Hudson Valley. Misty Cook, a Mohican tribe member and herbalist, will present on the traditional medicines found in the garden installation, and ethnoecologist Justin Wexler will describe the precontact Catskill Mountain landscape as we encounter native flora and fauna on a walk through the forest of the Doris Duke Preserve Round Top.
This event will take place in both the garden installation and in the woods, so be sure to wear comfortable footwear!
Advance registration for this event is required. Please do not attend if you are feeling ill or have been exposed to someone with COVID.
