Join adrienne as she dives deep with Suhaly Bautista-Carolina. They discuss rooted energy, looking back, bruja-ness, plant magic, the Tao Te Ching, the snake skin of the way, childhood memories as stepping stones to where we are, growing up between two city parks, Mamá Tingó, being another beginning, burrowing under ground and using your unique skills and finally, figuring it out before it's too late.

Suhaly (she/they/we/us) is an Afro Dominican herbalist, artist, cultural worker, and community organizer whose work lives intentionally at the intersection of plant power and people power. Before joining the American LGBTQ+ Museum as Director of Public Programs and Partnerships in 2023, Bautista-Carolina served as Senior Managing Educator of Audience Development and Engagement at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she led MetFest! and the Civic Practice Partnership Artist in Residence program. Bautista-Carolina is a 2021 Women in Power Fellow, an executive board member of ArtTable and Weeksville Heritage Center, and has worked in various capacities with organizations including the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), Brooklyn Museum, the Laundromat Project, and Creative Time. Through her practice, Moon Mother Apothecary, Bautista-Carolina centers care, collective wisdom, and ancestral legacy, while creating spaces of agency to facilitate healing. She is based in her native home of New York City, (Lenapehoking) where she lives with her wife and their baby girl, Luna.
