Speaker: Karyn Molines
Throughout human history plants have provided us with food, shelter, fiber for clothing and vessels, medicines, cosmetics, dyes and colors, decorations and furniture. Comparisons of different cultures will be highlighted by examples of native American uses of wild plants. Myth and fact in symbolism, folklore and medicine bring the plant-people relationship out of the domain of ecology and into cultural history and art. Handouts will be provided that supplement the lecture or you can print your own: Wild_Uses_of_Plants.pdf
