The Illinois Bicentennial is an important marker for the history of Illinois citizens. A narrative that is often overlooked in history and science is that of Native Americans. To remedy this and enrich the Bicentennial celebration, C2ST, in partnership with the Trickster Gallery, Chicago City Markets and the Mitchell Museum, is hosting an Indigenous Science program. This program will be made up of a panel of qualified experts in ethnobotany, sustainability, and conservation. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience and an interactive exhibit with examples of medicinal plants and herbs from the Trickster Gallery’s garden collection.
