"Cherokee Medicines and How They Can be Used Today"
The diverse flora of the Southeast once provided everything that was needed by the original inhabitants. This is why native people held in high esteem every plant of forest and field. Our modern day ignoring of these gifts is what separates us from a life of truly interacting with nature on an intimate level. And that loss has, no doubt, contributed to our careless handling of the land. The good news is that this trend can be reversed, one person at a time. Come see some of the plants that were used by the Cherokee for their common ailments, ranging from minor cuts, stings, head lice, and rashes to gall stones, dysentery, nausea, and skin cancer. Techniques for field preparations will be included.
