My nickname is Cease, my traditional Name is T’uy’tanat. I am a student of life and i have chosen/been chosen by, the plant medicine world, to learn and utilize medicines for healing and strengthening. I have grown up with the Skwxwu7mesh Uximixw. I am Skwxwu7mesh, Sto:Lo, Hawaiian and Swiss.
I have spent my teenage-hood to my adulthood researching and learning how to practice as much of my indigenous culture as I can. I am a student of life. I have a need to learn through hands-on interaction. I also love to share knowledge in this way.
Reciprocity is invaluable to indigenous cultures. This is how I see my learning and teaching practice and discipline. I seek to learn as much about indigenous plant medicines and foods as I can. I also endeavour to share that knowledge as I learn it.
I am going to explore my learning and sharing practices through this blog. I look forward to what this brings together in terms of online community building and dialogues.
