Event Description: Stephanie Morningstar (OnΛyota'a:ka – Oneida, Turtle clan, Lotinosho:ni/Haudenosaunee Confederacy and German/English ancestry) is an herbalist and earth worker at Sky World Apothecary & Farm. Her work as an indigenous ethnobotanist, cultural anthropologist, student, and educator centers on the intersections between native and settler species plants of Dish With One Spoon territory; the translation of indigenous knowledge and science; bioregional and ancestral plant medicines; and uplifting humans through food sovereignty.

She also advocates for culturally safe spaces as a leadership council member for the New England Women's Herbal Conference and the International Herb Symposium. And she serves as an indigenous knowledge mobilization specialist for Global Water Futures, an interdisciplinary, multi-partner hydrological research consortium focused on adaptive measures to address climate change in cold regions.
