DECOLONIZINGWe acknowledge that we still have a lot to learn, and there is room for improvement. We invite you to join in our journey of truth and reconciliation, decolonization and indigenization.
We are starting an Indigenous Garden at Clinton Park Fieldhouse to embody the perspectives and principles of Indigenous culture and teachings on this Land. Most of the plants in the garden are used as food and medicine by the Indigenous people who have been here for millennia. You are welcome to visit and walk gently on Grandmother Earth.
We list out some of the most commonly seen native plants in our community. Click each picture to read more.
