Native Forest with Chenae Bullock

Now–December 31, 2023

Ongoing | At the Garden

As you walk through this collection, we invite you to join Indigenous perspective historian and entrepreneur Chenae Bullock on a self-guided tour of the Thain Family Forest. Bullock’s writing features some of the useful and edible plants utilized by the Indigenous inhabitants of the Northeast.

Bullock is an enrolled Tribal Member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation and descendant of the Montauk Tribe in Long Island, New York. Bullock lends her extensive knowledge of Northeastern native plant life to explore contemporary and historic perspectives on some of the forests’ most important plants.
