31 Dec Milla Prince
I grew up in the endless boreal forests of Eastern Finland, about two hundred miles from the Arctic Circle, and a hundred miles from the Russian border. My work as a writer and folk herbalist is grounded in my people’s ancestral folk medicine and my culture’s surviving land-based practices. I am also a student of my paternal side’s Palestinian medicine, and love exploring both the striking differences and surprising similarities of the two cultures.
Among my passions are connecting people with their own ancestral folk lineage with plants and writing about the intersections of old ways, ancient practices and the modern world. Through my work, I hope to share plant medicine, ancestral herbalism, community resilience, reciprocity, land-based healing, animism and folk magic for the wild and wooly times we live in.
I’m an immigrant to what we currently call the USA, and live on a small island on unceded Coast Salish Territory. In English I use she/her pronouns.
