You’re invited to join us for Ethan Tyo’s graduate practicum presentation, which will culminate in planting a Three Sisters Garden using the traditional seeds and methods of the Onondaga Nation in Pete’s Giving Garden.

This dedication will focus on the May planting moon and create what is known as a traditional “Three Sisters garden”, which will incorporate the Onondaga Nation Seed Keepers’ knowledge and wisdom. This event will include a presentation on seed sovereignty, revitalizing Indigenous foods, and the impact that climate change has on Haudenosaunee ways of being. It will also acknowledge the return of traditional seeds to the ancestral land of the Onondaga Nation, giving Haudenosaunee students the chance to learn and practice cultural revitalization while in an academic setting.

The in-person ceremony is closed to invited guests. All are welcome to watch the livestream on Zoom. Preregistration is required.
