We give thanks to our medicines

Snipe Clan Botanicals

We do hands-on, educational workshops for those who want to learn how to identify, harvest, and utilize our traditional plant medicines. Workshops we’ve held in the past include Medicine Walks, Salve-making, and Tea-making.

Medicine Walks can take place just about anywhere. We walk, we talk, we ask questions, and we learn about the different plants that are growing right outside our homes. Salve-making and Tea-making workshops teach you how to turn plants into medicinal healing salves or delicious (and sometimes not-so-delicious-but-still-beneficial) teas to alleviate a variety of ailments.

We provide the tools, the knowledge, and—for those interested—the Mohawk language. Drop us a line if you’d like to know more.
