Native American Medicines We Use During the Winter Months: Virtual Event with Misty Cook
November 4, 2021
Misty Cook (Davids), M.S. studied traditional medicines over seven years to complete her book “Medicine Generations” and enjoyed every minute of it. This includes searching for them, identification, gathering, drying, preservation for use throughout the year, preparation and having them available for those who need them. She is also a cultural consultant with a Master’s degree in management, providing diversity trainings on may topics including Native American students in education, Native American history, Native American games, and of course, medicines.
We will start with history of our medicines and the people who helped preserve them. We will also talk about the medicines that we use during the Winter months for colds and the flu. We will touch upon #6 (Wild Bergamot), Mullien, and Sumac. We will learn how to properly identify the medicines and the correct ways of harvesting each medicine and disposal.
