Traditional Tea Time in Lingit Aani
This session will include a demonstration of how to prepare traditional, Indigenous teas, in addition to a discussion about the relationship between Indigenous plant knowledge, storytelling, and culture. Trixie will share more about the powerful stories we learn from plants, and how they can help us to recognize the strength from our elders and ancestors, including two of her own favourite lessons from Tlingit legends and leaders. Audiences will also learn more about how interconnected the loss of Indigenous land is to loss of food knowledge, and what this means for current and future generations. This skills demonstration is just one of the ways to harness, and share, lessons that would otherwise be lost from communities blighted by colonialism. This will be an immersive, powerful, and eye-opening demonstration with the opportunity for Q&A.
