Author Mary Siisip Geniusz has spent more than 30 years working with, living with and using Anishinaabe teachings, recipes and botanical information. She gained much of her knowledge from working as an oshkaabewis, or traditionally trained apprentice. She was also a friend to Keewaydinoquay, an Anishinaabe medicine woman from Michigan and a scholar, teacher and practitioner of native ethnobotany. Geniusz shares her own experiences, as well as stories from other American Indian traditions, while explaining the uses, meaning and history of plants. She explains how to create food, simple medicines and create practical botanical tools.Breana Roy
