Working with Indigenous Plant Medicines

This class will teach students how to identify, harvest, understand some medicinal uses for, and prepare 16 different non-endangered indigenous medicinal plants that are commonly found across North America. Working with these plants, students will learn 10 common modern and traditional medicine-making techniques from Indigenous North American and European herbalism traditions that they can use to treat common minor health concerns at home. This class was created for beginners, and all are welcome.

Joshua Dunn (Osage) has studied Indigenous North American plants, and how to work with them as medicine, with Indigenous plant knowledge-keepers across Turtle Island. He also has a background in western herbalism, ethnobotany, and sustainable agriculture. As a bioregional herbalist and teacher, he focuses on working with plants that are abundant locally. He incorporates both traditional Indigenous and European medicine-making techniques into his practice.
