Lucille Burr Grignon is an enrolled member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Nation and a direct descendant of the Menominee Nation. Muh-he-con-ne-ok being of the People of the Waters that are never still and Menominee being of the Ancient movers. She is a passionate Indigenous homesteader, educator, and advocate for her community and the world around her. Her family owns an Indigenous Homestead called Ancient Roots in Bowler, Wisconsin. They research traditional gardening practices from their ancestors dating back to ages ago to the present day. They use a combination of their methods to learn, preserve, grow, seed save, reconnect, and share. They are working to reconnect to their cultural inheritance through the land, plants, medicines, and wildlife. Lucy recognizes her connections to her Indigenous roots come in many forms, from their language journey to the stories of their elders, their people, and their healing.
This event is part of the Sanctuary’s Eco-Art Trail, supported by an NEA Our Town Grant in collaboration with the Stockbridge-Munsee Community Band of Mohican Indians.
