Love Medicine: Plants, Animals, and Affection.

Among the Lakota and other tribes of the Great Plains, plants have numerous uses within the realm of food, medicine, material and ceremony. Often, the way a plant is used is highly dependant on who is using it and how the plant is harvested and prepared. This talk will focus on plants that are traditionally used for increasing feelings of love and affection, and on the many other ways these same plants are used in healing.
