Roots of Our Renewal

Chapter 4, “Indigenous Ethnobotany,” describes the significance of ethnobotanical knowledge in Cherokee culture in the present day and the traits of this knowledge in the context of Cherokee medicine. I discuss the significance of ethnobotany as a tribal project and how it represents both a tool for cultural revitalization and an object of critique in the context of settler colonialism and the cultural politics of knowledge.
