    • BSS 408, 12-1:30 pm Hybrid/ In-person format.

    • Facilitator: Evie Ferriera & Karley Rojas

    • Medicinal Properties of Plants' is an in-person/hybrid workshop presented by Evie Ferriera and Karley Rojas, which will introduce participants to herbalism in an Indigenous-facing modality. Evie Ferreira (Ancestral Heritage: Yoeme, Mestiza; Mexican American) is an HSU alumnus and works for the Cultural Conservancy as the Native Foodways Manager. Karley is the research assistant for the Lab, an ethnobotanist and herbalist.

    • We will discuss the history of herbalism, touch upon herbal energetics and actions, and discuss food as medicine. We will focus on specific plant species that are accessible with which participants can start forming a relationship, and have a hands-on activity preparing elixirs. Participants will receive their own elixir sample to take home, and a recipe card. 

    • A prerequisite for this workshop is the 'Gathering for Indigenous Empowerment' Workshop. If you did not participate in the prerequisite workshop, please complete the activity and assessment (please email, Karley Rojas, for a link).
