Self-Guided Exhibit & Audio Tour (Listen on Your Own Device)
Plants contain a multitude of stories—botanical, medical, ecological, and more. Humans also have many stories to tell about plants. Ohkehteau (Plants of the Earth): A Shinnecock Oral History is a new exhibit and audio tour that highlights native plants around Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the ways that Indigenous peoples use and know them. On your self-guided tour, hear Chenae Bullock tell stories passed down to her and describe traditional uses for plants, including medicines that have been used for thousands of years.
