Indigenous people have shared many forms of medicine throughout generations still practiced to this day. And through time, different forms of medicine have emerged becoming a way a life. From running marathons to practicing yoga, or continuing beadwork to traditional dancing, these ways have not only become embedded into our daily lives but become medicine practices for healing.
"Our Medicine Stories" provides space for guests to share their stories and forms of medicine practiced by elders, youth and those throughout our communities, offering wellness tips, self-care practices, & DIY's that could be integrated into your own life and journey.
Join our guest host Marissa Baumgartner of the Cayuse, Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Wintun people!
