sweet-for-smudgeWe are honored to have our beautiful Elder Sweet Medicine with us again for the Spirit Weavers Gathering, coming from Oregon to share her wisdom and wise ways.

Sweet Medicine Nation (Chickasaw/Choctaw/French/Irish) is a gifted artist, educator, lecturer, and healer who guides and initiates personal growth in others with her eloquence, wisdom, and gift for serving others. She awakens us to the personal and social value of earth stewardship, honoring the wisdom of natural ways to benefit ourselves and Mother Earth.

Sweet Medicine is involved in numerous local and International groups, federal agencies, endangered species research, and riparian studies and education. She is also a master of edible and medicinal plants of the local region in Central Oregon. Her background in Alternative Medicine, Midwifery, and Herbology, along with her written articles and books based on medicinal and edible native plants, compliments her heritage and love of sharing natural knowledge.

She is the founder and has served as the President of the Four Winds Foundation in Oregon for over 20 years.
