Native Plant Symposium: “Green Roots, Red Resilience”

November 12 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Green Roots, Red Resilience is focused on celebrating cultural relationships between Native American people and native plants. Through hands-on workshops led by local Native American plant knowledge keepers, attendants will explore and celebrate cultural uses, traditions, and relationships among multiple Native plants and the people who have been tending to and using these plants for centuries. Also, attendants will learn about the current-day community ethnobotany programs, taste traditional teas, discuss plant medicine, explore local fruits and edible plants, weave cattail mats, and exchange native plant seeds. Lunch and parking will be provided.

Speakers in this event represent four different Tribal Nations across NC – Haliwa-Saponi Indian Tribe, Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation, and Waccamaw Siouan Indian Tribe.

The event will be held in-person at Reeves Auditorium, NC Botancial Garden. The event is free to attend, make sure to pre-register below:
