Mohican Medicine for the Winter Months

November 18, 2023 @ 3:00 pm 6:00 pm EST

Misty Cook, M. S. of the Stockbridge-Munsee Community, works with plant medicines. Misty continues to pass on traditional knowledge by teaching, giving presentations, and through her book Medicine Generations. During this event, we will learn from Misty about history of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans Medicines and how her people preserved them. Misty will focus on the Medicines used throughout the Winter months, discussing gathering, preserving, usage and questions.

This event is one in a series related to the establishment and growth of a Medicine Garden in the NATURE Lab yard at the Sanctuary, which is part of the Sanctuary’s growing Eco-Art Trail, supported by an NEA Our Town Grant in collaboration with the Stockbridge-Munsee Community Band of Mohican Indians.

This Medicine Garden installation is also made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Arts Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of The Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by The Arts Center of the Capital Region.
