The Land of the Lenape

Brooklyn Botanic Garden occupies part of the unceded homeland of the Lenape people. We acknowledge today’s Lenape communities. Informed by their knowledge, we seek to educate ourselves and the public in ways that challenge the dominant colonial worldview of science, botany, and horticulture.
