Native Plants for Health/Wellness – UCD’s 2021 Workshop Series
Native Plants for Health & Wellness
Thursday, January 7, 2021, 6:00 – 7:30pm
Presented by Elaine Harvey, member of the Yakama Tribe and the Rock Creek “Kah-miltpah” Band in eastern Klickitat County, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the Plateau Tribes, their history and connection to the land and water, the native plants of the region and their importance to the plateau. Elaine has lived in this region her entire life and learned many of the traditional Yakama medicines and food sources from her late grandmother and other family members. All traditional Yakama foods are considered medicinal foods and bring good health to the people. Elaine’s traditional knowledge combined with her western knowledge brings about a concern for traditional plants and their resilience with climate change. As her elders and ancestors have had reverence for the land and the resources, Elaine carries those teachings and concerns for the environment for all future generations.
