The Missouri Botanical Garden is sponsoring the Grafting the Grape online program series in partnership with the Missouri Humanities Council and with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Archaeology of American Indigenous peoples’ use of grapes
Presentation and discussion on how prehistoric indigenous peoples of the Americas were using the native grapes and grapevines by Dr. Susan Kooiman, whose archaeological research focus on foodways, pottery, and the precontact Indigenous peoples of North America.

Susan Kooiman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, has focused her past research on culinary and technological change in the Upper Great Lakes region of North America during the Woodland period (200 BC – AD 1600). She explores these topics through functional analysis of pottery and analysis of adhered and absorbed food residues (in collaboration with specialists).

ASL interpretation and live captioning provided for each program. Presentations will be recorded for later viewing on the Garden's YouTube channel.
