Ikke meget er offentligt kendt om Crow eller absaroka/absaalooke indianerne, men her deler Alma Hogan Snall gavmildt af den visdom, hun som barnebarn af den berømte medicinkvinde Pretty Shield, der selv var opvokset på prærien før reservaterne blev oprettet, bogstaveligt talt fik ind med modermælken. Bogen indeholder afsnit om healing, om urter og medicin til brug for at hele f.eks. slangebid, hovedpine, kramper i benene, ledproblemer, asthma m.m. Sjældne anekdoter om det frie, naturlige live på prærien, før europæerne kom til og oplevelser hun havde sammen med sin bedstemor pibler ud og ind mellem lækre opskrifter på supper, te og brød samt omslag, elskovsmidler, fertilitetshjælpemidler og meget mere.

Sæt dig godt til rette og lær om mange opbyggelige aspekter fra en rig indiansk kultur J

Description

Drawing on the knowledge and wisdom of countless generations of Crow Indian women, the well-known speaker and teacher Alma Hogan Snell presents an indispensable guide to the traditional lore, culinary uses, and healing properties of native foods.

A Taste of Heritage imparts the lore of ages along with the traditional Crow philosophy of healing and detailed practical advice for finding and harvesting plants: from the key to creating irresistible dishes of cattails and dandelions, salsify and Juneberries, antelope meat and buffalo hooves, to the secret of using plants to enhance beauty and incite love. Snell describes the age-old practice of turning wildflowers and garden plants into balms and remedies for such ailments and injuries as snakebite, headache, leg cramps, swollen joints, asthma, and sores. She brings to bear not only her lifetime of experience but also the invaluable lessons of her grandmother, the legendary medicine woman Pretty Shield.
