This class will teach students how to identify, harvest, understand some medicinal uses for, and prepare 14 different non-endangered indigenous medicinal plants that are commonly found in Lakota and Dakota territory, as well as many other places across North America. Working with these plants, students will learn 10 common modern and traditional medicine-making techniques that they can use to treat common minor health concerns at home.
At the conclusion of the course, students who attend at least 12 of the 14 sessions will be eligible to receive samples of the medicines made in class via mail.
