This Thursday! Help celebrate the work of the Sacred Leaders youth-led initiative to support MAIC's commercial tobacco-free grounds policy. #keeptobaccosacred #myexistenceisresistance
Today is the last harvest of the Sacred Tobacco. I don’t smoke tobacco or promote smoking it in anything other than a truly sacred fashion. Prayers were spoken over this tobacco asking for it to teach those who use it habitually or out of the sacred context of medicine making, making offerings, and sending prayers how to be in right relationship with it as a sacred plant.  It is up to us to heal the relationships that have been damaged by humanity’s lack of awareness and consciousness in the past. It has gotten me thinking about how we have and continue to have abusive relationships with a number of plants. I’m grateful for the opportunity to build a right relationship here and for the awareness to start to examine any feelings of entitlement to use these plants just because I planted them and tended to them. #honorthesacred #keeptobaccosacred #sacredtobacco #plantspirits #plantspiritwisdom #gratefulfortheharvest #gratefulforthelessons #honorthesacreds #heartofgoldfarm #healthyspirit #listentothemessages #tobaccoismycopilot

Meet Nathan. Nathan was a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. He never smoked but his exposure to secondhand smoke led to his early death at age 54. Sadly, Nathan's story is not uncommon. Every year 73,000 non-smokers die of lung cancer and many more die of other diseases caused by secondhand smoke. #KeepTobaccoSacred

Sacred Tobacco making! You get to see my messy traveling work station. Was in ceremony this weekend and wanted to add the blessing to this new batch. The specific prayers that went into this one is for the planting of seeds. May all of our prayers find fertile soil. May we tend to our intentions with patience and loving kindness. And may we continue to grow and expand. Rooting in the Earth and reaching for the sun. 🙏🌱🌎🌞

A couple of days ago I received really hard news that made me feel off centered and unsteady. This created an opportunity for yet another plant relative to offer its healing. Yesterday I learned about reclaiming Asemaa (traditional tobacco). I have seen and even prayed with Asemaa but I never knew about the process of harvesting it or which plant it comes from. Today I have been overwhelmed with the feeling of being provided for. Chi miigwech Gichi Manidoo for always putting me in the situations that help me grow and evolve I have a great faith knowing and remembering that you are always on my side. The video at the end is of a gift I received from my mom, an incredible porcupine quill hat band that she has spent countless hours over the last several months working on. Instantly a prized possession infused with the love and intention of my Creator, the woman who carried me inside of her. I will hold onto this for my whole life. Also @instagram removed this post yesterday????

Oh how I love my huge tobacco leaves! I respect and appreciate all the medicine that this plant gives to us. Did you know that tobacco naturally absorbs radiation from the air and soil? Think about that the next time you're choosing which plants to put close to your house 😊 #keeptobaccosacred #leafmedicine #beresponsible #herbalife

I have had many relapses of both nicotine and alcohol addictions in the past month. I'm resolved to leave that all behind. Drinking makes my body hurt, lowers my energy, exacerbates my acid reflux, and diminishes my overall self-care. Smoking grosses me out and irritates my nasal passages and my throat, in addition to causing and worsening eczema. It's also terrible for my acid reflux. I'm done. All the nicotine is out of my system already! I haven't had a craving since my last relapse. I am focusing on my breath more, and eating lots of fresh greens. #sobriety #smokingcessation #nicotinecessation #quitsmoking #quitnicotine #quittobacco #keeptobaccosacred #selfcare #radicalselfcare #bodypositivity

Mission complete! 
This is a tobacco flower. 
About a year ago my I was out camping with my aunt who's been tracing down her roots. 
She was adopted out of the white earth reservation and is just now being welcomed back, learning about her history, and teaching others about what many like her have gone through. 
In order to meditate a bit more on this I decided to learn to grow a few tobacco plants. I found seeds indigenous to Wisconsin and have finally gotten a couple to flower. From my understanding these flowers wouldn't be used commercially but I wanted to see what was being lost. #growyourown #keeptobaccosacred

When we offer our tobacco, we honor our ancestors and the spirits. When we grow our own traditional tobacco, we are healing. 
I am so grateful to those who are advocates and are policy warriors for our spiritual rights. I'm so proud of my sister @cocofreshest and the work she has done to make Gathering of Native Americans conference #GONA2017 this past week in #Shakopee MN such a healing and beautiful experience. @siouxchef

I have been thinking a lot about how our people, myself included, often forget about our sacred asemaa, our sacred tobacco. Especially in our daily lives or when speaking to elders and asking someone for help. I remember being taught about asemaa and one of the things I remember being told was "Apiitendaagwad anishinaabe apane aabiji'aad odasemaan. Mashkawaadizi a'aw aesmaa." "It is essential that anishinaabe people always use their tobacco. That tobacco has power." Today we live in a society that expects us to live in a linear way. But that is not how our culture survives, we are supposed to go through life in a circular way. Living outside of our sacred hoop is how we lose some of our most important teachings such as how to use tobacco in a sacred and respectful way. Hopefully this post will serve as a reminder to myself and others to take care of the teachings we are given...

I really dislike giving tobacco to an elder in a brand name plastic package. So in preparation for the sweat I am attending this Thursday I sewed a little tobacco pouch instead.
