“Native Science I feel relates so much to how Native Americans live their life. The medicinal plants are very much a part of that science. Native Americans lived off from the land. They used what they needed, and not any more than that. They made sure not to over-harvest their food crop. They planted seasonally, so that they utilized the land, without damaging it. When they used the plants, they made sure not to kill the plants. They used bark from trees for clothing, mats to sleep on, and for berry baskets. At no time did they kill the tree. There was a certain way to take the bark, and that was taught generation to generation. I was fortunate enough, to be able to go and gather cedar bark last year with the elders. I was really thankful for the lesson on how this is done.” –Dawn Miller
