Herbs of Long Ago Kayas Muskekeya

CAD $35.00

This book is a compilation of the plants and wild herbs used by the Cree people in their traditional medicine, as told by Luke Chalifoux (a Cree Medicine-man with much accumulated knowledge in the medicinal use of these herbs). The first half of this book has a list of the common plant name, the botanical name, as well as the Cree plant name, with an accompanying description of what it was used for, and how it was prepared. The second part of the book provides a long list of ailments, from arthritis to weaning a child from the breast. A description is provided under each heading of how they were treated with traditional medicine.

Another one of my estate sale finds, when it’s gone it’s gone.

Additionally if you are interested in traditional Indigenous Tattooing I suggest checking out the Tattooing Practices Booklet.
