A Weed by Any Other Name: The Creator's Unexpected Bounty

Linda Black Elk 

Many of us believe weeds in our gardens are anything but invaders – taking up space, nutrients, and sunlight from our favorite fruits, vegetables and flowers. Linda will discuss how “weeds” enhance our lives and create a world that, when treated with respect, produces enough food, medicine, and materials for us all. Just in time for spring!

Linda Black Elk (Catawba Nation), instructor at Sitting Bull College, is an ethnobotanist specializing in teaching culturally important plants used as food and medicine. A prolific writer, Linda’s most recently published article is “Watoto Unyutapi,” a field guide to edible wild plants of the Dakota people. Since 2001, Linda has taught English, Mathematics, Native American Studies, Science Education, and Ethnobotany.
