Interview with Tahnagha Yako, a Native Ojibwe Herbalist & Healer

An interesting ( audio only ) interview with Tahnagha Yako, a Herbalist & Healer. - Tahnagha Yako is a Taino, Mohawk healer who was adopted into the Anishinabe way by a medicine woman of the Midwest.

For 23 years, Tahnahga was an apprentice with this teacher Grandmother Keewaydinoquay, an Anishinaabeg Elder of the Crane Clan and a scholar, ethno-botanist, herbalist, medicine woman, teacher, and author.

Tahnagha's work comes from her deep sense of her identity as a Native woman. She uses her ancestral teachings to work for peace, comfort, growth, and healing.

Thanks to Connie for the link.
