Learn about flowering plants indigenous to the Americas, their different uses, and the significance behind them with Native artists Jennifer Younger (Tlingit) and Neebinnaukzhik Southall (Chippewas of Rama First Nation). Drawing inspiration from her Tlingit cultural traditions such as weaving and formline designs, Younger crafts each of her jewelry pieces to be one-of-a-kind. Southall is committed to representing and empowering Indigenous peoples through her artwork, which features Anishinaabe floral designs. Activities include sketching flowers, decorating a pot, and planting a sunflower.
