Herbs in History & Today: Nettles

May 23 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm CDT

This program is part of on-going educational series on Indigenous traditional medicine practices on the Great Plains presented by the Intertribal Medicine Collective. Foci are healing traditions, traditional ecological knowledge, & cultural preservation efforts by today’s Indigenous Peoples.

Felecia Welke will be sharing how to prepare traditional medicine with a hands on make-and-take of Stinging Nettles tea, including historical uses of a powerful and ubiquitous plant medicine.

Felecia Welke is an enrolled citizen of the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska with over a decade of experience studying traditional plant medicines and Indigenous healing modalities. She has studied and developed practices in birth work, traditional medicine making, traditional Indigenous craft practice, Indigenous ceremonial practices, and Indigenous food sovereignty movements. Her teachings are obtained through Indigenous pedagogical models from other Native American women across Turtle Island and globally. Felecia is a co-founder and co-organizer of the Intertribal Medicine Collective, and regularly offers public educational programs to the southeastern, Nebraska community, with an emphasis on the local Black and Indigenous community.
