TEIONHENKWEN Supporters of Life
With the help of Silverbear (Kanien’kehá:ka) and Joce TwoCrows Mashkikii Bimosewin Tremblay (Great Lakes métis, onon:wat/nizh manidook)
TEIONHENKWEN Supporters of Life is a land-based urban ecology, a gathering place that follows pathways of generative reciprocity. It includes local native plant varieties with medicinal properties and utilitarian and ceremonial values. The shapes in which these plants are bedded in are inspired by local Indigenous cultural symbols. All of these elements combine to create visibility for Indigenous plants, peoples, and animals that are present but have few safe places to gather and coexist in urban spaces.
