Edible Plants and Native American Recipes

Native American Nutrition

Herbal Uses and Preparation





This garden volunteer found crowding its way into cultivated plots across the
United States. It is a national wild food treasure for Native Americans.
Typically, the seed heads are eaten while in bloom or when mature. A close
relative of Lamb's Quarters is Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa). Both plants are
members of the goosefoot family. Chenopodium quinoa is an edible primal
grain that you can purchase in health food stores and 7th Day Adventist
markets. But Lamb's Quarters is my favorite. The leaves are edible as well as
the seed heads. Lamb's Quarters leaf tea was used for treating
stomachache, scurvy, diarrhea. A wet pulverized mass may be poulticed
over burns. Before applying the mass to the burn site, the victim chews the
leaves mixing in saliva and the mouth antibiotic defensin. As food, Lamb's
quarters leaves may be added to salads, stir fry, steamed in wontons with
quinoa, carrots and burdock root.

Indigenous Plants & Native Uses in the Northeast.




All the plants listed here grow along the trails of Schoolhouse Brook Park in
Mansfield, Connecticut. This list was compiled specifically for a trail-side tour
that described the Native American uses of local plants for food and
medicine, as well as some technological and ceremonial uses. Every attempt
was made to credit particular Native American Tribes with the information
researched. The gathering walk follows the trails, a WOODED trail on the
north side of Clover Mill Road (which follows part of the traditional Nipmuc
Trail) , and a POND SIDE trail on the south side of Clover Mill Road.
(Gathering walk tours were provided for the Nipmuc Indian Association of
CT, and for the CT State Museum of Natural History).

Day, the more I reed the words of wisdom written in your signature...

Quote:
What truly matters most in life can never be expressed physically. Your five senses for all of their exquisite interpretation of a physical world, are in fact meaningless when it comes to those values that give life its deepest meaning.
...the more I long those values to come true.

Actually, allmost everything is really meaningless...except the fact that we've been given the unique chance to learn those values with our heart. To learn them and practice them...here and now, in this life !

Poland is so far away from America, but I found a connection. I'd like to present to you one brave man. He was half Polish, half Native American...

Sat-Okh


Sat Okh ("Long Feather"), also known as Stanisław Supłatowicz (April 15, 1920 in Canada – July 3, 2003 in Gdańsk) was a Polish-Shawnee Canadian who became a soldier in the Polish Resistance during World War II. After the war and imprisonment by the Communist government, he worked as a sailor and published several novels in Polish.

Early life and education

Sat Okh was born to a Polish immigrant mother, Stanisława Supłatowicz, and a Shawnee father, Leoo-Karko-Ono-Ma (Tall Eagle), who was chief of the tribe. He was raised near the Mackenzie River in the North-Western Territory of Canada, and was educated in tracking, hunting, and living with nature.

Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, at the age of 16-17, Sat Okh travelled with his mother to Poland, where she wanted to see her family. In 1940, after the German conquest of Poland, he was arrested by the Gestapo and imprisoned for over eight months.

He was then sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp but escaped from the transport train. He joined Armia Krajowa, a major part of the Polish resistance. He was called Kozak (Cossack). During his underground military service, Sat Okh received the Krzyż Walecznych for bravery.

In 1945 the newly established Polish Communist government forced Sat Okh to take a Polish name. He took the masculinized form of his mother's name, "Stanisław Supłatowicz". After the war, in 1945 Supłatowicz was arrested and sentenced by the Polish Communist regime for having fought with the resistance Armia Krajowa.

After being released from prison, he worked as a sailor. Over a 40-year period, he published several novels in Polish related to his First Nations/American Indian heritage.

YUFALA "STAR" CLAN
of
LOWER MUSCOGEE CREEK INDIANS




Preserving Our Native American
Heritage through Education and Cultural
Experience

“People of the One Fire”:
Alabama’s Creek Indians

The Creeks were the largest, most important Indian group living in Alabama. They called themselves “People of the One Fire”. The English traders called them “Creeks” because their villages were built primarily along creeks and rivers. In the early days, most of the Creek villages were in Georgia. However, with the arrival of the English colonists in 1730, the majority of the Creek nation was forced to join their relatives who had taken residence in the “western wilderness” which would eventually become known as “Alabama”. The name “Alabama” was taken from the “Alibamos” Indians, the first Creek tribe to populate the region.

The scattered Creek villages were united in a loose “Confederacy”. Each village was independent and made its own decisions. However, in times of war many villages united to defeat a common enemy. Those who chose to fight called “Red Villages”, and those who decided not to engage in war were known as “White Villages”.

The “Mico” or Chief was the most important person in the village. While many villages classified all of their Tribal Council as “Lower Chiefs”, the “Mico” was known as “The Greatly Honored Man”. He vowed to fight only for a just cause, and looked after the daily needs of his people. Indian society took care of widows, orphans, and needy. The village Elders were held in a place of honor, and advised the Council on all important Tribal matters. Village Chiefs would meet together in council at least once a year. These annual meetings were held in Elmore County, Alabama.


The Yufala “Star” Clan:
A Modern Day Tribe with Traditional Values

The Yufala “Star” Clan of Lower Muscogee Creek Indians takes its name from both the Muscogee word “Y’ufala” (Eagle), and the Star, which is found within the Tribal symbol.

In the early 1970’s, the Tribe chose to relocate its headquarters in the Western sphere of their traditional area of influence. Under the leadership of Chief Larry Johnson, the Tribe moved to Pike County, Alabama.

In 1978, Larry Johnson retired from the office of Chief, and returned to his hometown of Panama City, Florida. It was in October of 1978 that Tommy Davenport was appointed Chief of the Yufala “Star” Clan. During his time in office, he was instrumental in helping to create the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission. He also served on the Commission from its inception. He was Chairman of the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission at the time of his death in 1991. At that time, it was the consensus of the Tribe to elect his wife, Erma Lois Davenport, as Chief of the Yufala “Star” Clan. She presently serves in that capacity, continuing the pioneering work that her husband began almost 30 years ago.

The Home of the Yufala “Star” Clan is Pike County, Alabama. Our membership consists of families in the States of Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Indiana, Tennessee, and Georgia, as well as Alabama.

The Star Clan is dedicated to the education of our people in their culture and heritage. In the words of our fathers:

“You must be able to see where you have been, before you can possibly know where you want to go.”

Native Healing - The Cherokee Way







The scent of atsin (cedar) is rich in the air. A soft song accompanied by a
small gourd rattle - a gantsedi is being sung by didanawisgi - a medicine man.
He kneels over his patient, lays down his rattle and gives the patient a sip of
a potion he has prepared from certain plants and herbs known to have a
healing for this sickness.

You might think this is a scene from years ago but it isn’t. This scene with
slight modifications due to tribal traditions and ceremonies is being performed
for patients all over the country. Why? Simply because it works. Here the
goal is to first help the patient recover - to cure the sickness - to help the
patient find his or her balance - the harmony of our living. The ceremony is
as important as the potion or salve made from the plants or herbs. This is
what is now known as holistic healing - a healing of the complete person.

The tradional Cherokee philosophy
is that even the smallest drop of
Cherokee Blood
makes one a Cherokee.




There is no such thing as 'part-Cherokee.'
Either you're Cherokee or you're not.
It isn't the quantity of Cherokee blood
in your veins that is important,
but the quality of it . . . your pride in it.
I have seen full-bloods
who have virtually no idea of
the great legacy entrusted to their care.
Yet, I have seen people
with as little as 1/500th blood
who inspire the spirits of their ancestors
because they make being Cherokee
a proud part of a their everyday life."

Jim Pell: Principal Chief
of the North Alabama Cherokee Tribe

"Being Indian is mainly in your heart.
It's a way of walking with the earth
instead of upon it.

A lot of the history books
talk about us Indians in the past tense,
but we don't plan on going anywhere...

We have lost so much, but the thing that
holds us together is that we all belong to
and are protectors of
the earth;
that's the reason for us being here.

Mother Earth is not a resource,
she is an heirloom."

David Ipinia, Yurok Artist, Sacramento, CA

"I think the Spirit, is the one thing we have to rely on.
It has been handed to us as a live and precious coal.
And each generation has to make that decision
whether they want to blow on that coal to keep it alive
or throw it away...

Our language, our histories and culture are like a big
ceremonial fire that's been kicked and stomped and scattered...

Out in the darkness we can see those coals glowing.
But our generation, whether in tribal government or wherever
we find ourselves--Choctaw, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Creek,
Seminole--are coal gatherers. We bring the coals back,
assemble them and breathe on them again,
so we can spark a flame around which we might warm ourselves."

Gary White Deer, Chickasaw 1994

How The Milky Way Came To Be

retold by Barbara Shining Woman Warren



Long ago when the world was young, there were not many stars in the sky.

In those days the people depended on corn for their food. Dried corn could
be made into corn meal by placing it inside a large hollowed stump and
pounding it with a long wooden pestle. The cornmeal was stored in large
baskets. During the winter, the ground meal could be made into bread and
mush.

One morning an older man and his wife went to their storage basket for
some cornmeal. They discovered that someone or something had gotten
into the cornmeal during the night. This upset them very much for no one in
a Cherokee village stole from someone else.

Then they noticed that the cornmeal was scattered over the ground. In the
middle of the spilt meal were giant dog prints. These dog prints were so large
that the elderly couple knew this was no ordinary dog.

They immediately alerted the people of the village. It was decided that this
must be a spirit dog from another world. The people did not want the spirit
dog coming to their village. They decided to get rid of the dog by frightening
it so badly it would never return. They gathered their drums and turtle shell
rattles and later that night they hid around the area where the cornmeal was
kept.

Late into the night they heard a whirring sound like many bird wings. They
looked up to see the form of a giant dog swooping down from the sky. It
landed near the basket and then began to eat great mouthfuls of cornmeal.


Suddenly the people jumped up shouting and beating and shaking their noise
makers. The noise was so loud it sounded like thunder. The giant dog turned
and began to run down the path. The people chased after him making the
loudest noises they could. It ran to the top of a hill and leaped into the sky,
the cornmeal spilling out the sides of its mouth.

The giant dog ran across the black night sky until it disappeared from sight.
But the cornmeal that had spilled from its mouth made a path way across
the sky. Each grain of cornmeal became a star.

The Cherokees call that pattern of stars,
gi li' ut sun stan un' yi
(gil-LEE-oot-soon stan-UNH-yee),
"the place where the dog ran."

And that is how the Milky Way came to be.
