This workshop will provide an ethnobotanical journey through a Southern Appalachian forest and field site to discover the gifts of nature that allowed the Native American society to flourish in this region. To understand that the forest offered everything that the Native Americans needed is to grasp the essence of precontact Native American life and at the same time truly appreciate the individual parts of nature. Participants will explore the crafts and lore of Native American life, including their use of wild plants for foods, medicines, repellents and everyday tools. These resources and cultural practices still exist today and continue to be useful to those who follow in the footsteps of the first inhabitants of Katuah, the land we now call Southern Appalachia. Class time will be spent mostly outdoors, so come prepared for the weather that day. Please note that this class is located outside of the Athens area.

This class is an elective for the Certificate in Native Plants.
