Traditional healers cultivate healing plants and lost heritage

Cheryl Morales started the medicinal garden at the Aaniiih Nakoda College demonstration farm with only four plants: yarrow, echinacea, plantain and licorice root. After 10 years, the campus garden within the Fort Belknap reservation in Montana now holds more than 60 species growing over nearly 30,000 square feet. She adds new plants annually. This year, she is testing Oregon grape root and breadroot.
