SOLD OUT—ReciprociTea with T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss
Sunday April 10, 2022 | 1 – 2:30 pm
Join cultural knowledge keeper and Indigenous plant diva T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss for an afternoon of hands-on learning about Indigenous plants.
In this interactive 90-minute program, learn about the importance of Indigenous plants, how they enhance our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our local ecosystems, and reflect on themes of reciprocity, stewardship and our relationship with the plant world.
The event features T’uy’t’tanat sharing herbal tea with each participant (stinging nettle, raspberry leaf, mint and rosehips) as well as her extensive knowledge through stories and songs in MOA’s Haida House. She will then lead a walk through the various Indigenous plants growing on MOA’s grounds, and talk about their uses and properties for traditional health practices.
Included with the program fee, each participant will also receive a bag of handcrafted Indigenous herbal tea from T’uy’t’tanat and her daughter Senaqwila Wyss’s co-owend Indigenous herbal tea company Raven and Hummingbird Tea Co.
T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh/Sto:Lo/Hawaiian/Swiss) is an interdisciplinary artist who works with digital media, writing, and performance as her multi-disciplinary arts practice. She is a community engaged and public artist and ethnobotanist. Her works range over 30 years and have always focused on sustainability, permaculture techniques, Coast Salish Cultural elements and have included themes of ethnobotany, Indigenous language revival, Salish weaving and digital media technology. Cease recently collaborated with Oli Salvas and Anne-Marie Mellster through the IOC-UNESCO project to create an app entitled “We Are Ocean” that has been a tremendous example of how indigenous and non-Indigenous communities need to unite through a cultural lens in order to raise awareness about sustainability and protecting species at risk, as well as recognition of our part in the colonial destruction of ecosystems.
