This evening presentation will explore the range of activities that constitute indigenous healing, referring to the traditional healing of North America before Europeans arrived on this continent. Within Vermont, the Abenaki people were engaged in healing long before Europeans appeared and we will discuss some of their philosophies and methods as well as those of the presenter's tribes -- the Cherokee and the Lakota. We will explore what conventional mainstream medicine could learn from indigenous healing systems and methods and how to create the best of both worlds.
