Details

Experience Ways of Knowing in four exhibits at The Wild Center that explore traditional ecological knowledge and invite us to consider different perspectives of nature. Thanksgiving Address: Explore The Wild Center’s newly reinterpreted living wetland exhibit through the lens of the Thanksgiving Address, a Haudenosaunee (Six Nations/Iroquois) greeting that invites reflection on the ways our existence is interconnected with the natural world. Reimagined by artist and Director of The Six Nations Indian Museum, David Fadden, this new experience will offer insight into the culture of the Indigenous Haudenosaunee people that have inhabited this region for thousands of years. Through the intersection of original art created by Fadden and storytelling videos, this new experience honors the ways of knowing our northern landscape. We Are From Akwesasne: Discover an interactive traveling exhibit of Mohawk art, artifacts, songs, stories, beliefs and craftsmanship. Curated by youth from Akwesasne alongside artist and Program Coordinator Sue Ellen Herne from the Akwesasne Cultural Center, We are From Akwesasne, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, offers a visual, auditory, and hands-on experience that illuminates the continuing culture and artistic heritage of Akwesasne. Roots of Wisdom: Highlights the experiences of four Indigenous communities as brought to life through the voices of elders and youth community members. This interactive exhibit immerses students in the story of how native peoples are using a collaborative approach to encourage sustainable solutions to real world challenges. Sacred Foods: Created by the Native North American Travelling College, the Sacred Foods exhibit showcases the resilience and survival of traditional Haudenosaunee food. Sacred Foods provides an intimate look into the past — from traditional gardening, the tools used for gathering, and real live plants to get a better understanding of Haudenosaunee food systems.
