Cedar Medicine | SustenanceNW

This is a daunting one for me. The importance of the cedar tree to the Salish peoples of this region is impossible to overstate. The practical, material, ecological, cultural, spiritual gifts from this tree to the peoples of this place over millennia are unfathomable to me. I know some really neat things about this tree that are worth sharing, and am excited to talk about it. And I want to be completely clear that cedar is an incomparable being that I cannot possibly do justice to. I benefit from the childlike knowledge I have of it and take joy in this level of sharing and knowing, and I look with respect and gratitude to the people indigenous to this place who keep alive their mature knowledge of it.
