Plants of the Earth: Meet Chenae Bullock

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join Chenae Bullock and other Indigenous presenters for live demonstrations of basket- and belt-weaving, as well as other uses of native plants, in the Shelby White and Leon Levy Water Garden. Presenters will also share traditional songs and dances.

Bullock’s exhibit and audio tour, Ohkehteau (Plants of the Earth): A Shinnecock Oral History, highlights native plants around the Garden and the ways that Indigenous peoples use and know them. In the self-guided tour, running through November 7, Bullock tells stories passed down to her and describes traditional uses for plants, including medicines that have been used for thousands of years.
