Plants Have So Much to Give Us, All We Have to Do Is Ask

Anishinaabe Botanical Teachings

Curiosity may have killed the cat but damn, what a ball it had in the meantime. So let down the tightly braided updo of your beliefs and entertain the idea that plants are beings with whom we can communicate and interact—the Anishinaabe and other Native American tribes have been doing just that for millennia. This project collects the stories, teachings, recipes, and practical uses of many dozens of common plants in an erudite, detailed, and scholarly way; you would be wrong to expect folksy fairy tales and witches’ brew.
