The Toki amanwani
Project aims to:
Preserve native plant medicine by making flower and environmental essences of prairie flowers throughout Lakota tribal lands.
Create a dialogue with mental health providers and other health care providers at Indian Health Service clinics about the beneficial uses of flower essences for people experiencing chronic and acute post trauma symptoms, suicidal ideation, substance abuse, and anxious/ depressive states.
Make and distribute flower essences to those suffering generational trauma caused by the effects of long term colonial genocide.
Engage native youth on the Cheyenne River Sioux, Pine Ridge, Rosebud, and Standing Rock Reservations to learn and create flower essence medicine for the healing of their communities.
A flower essence is a plant spirit medicine used to align the spirit with the mind body.
The use of plant spirit medicine has long been used in native communities as an essential part of healing.
