VIDEO: Decolonizing Herbalism: The Legacy of System Racism in America

Let us not forget, the land currently known as the United States was colonized using the brutal tactics of slavery and genocide. Ecosystems were destroyed as the Indigenous peoples were forced off their lands and Eurocentric government policies prohibited sacred herbalism practices, threatening severe consequences for anyone who dare defy African and Indigenous oppression. ‘

In this hour-long webinar, Racial Equity Pursuer & People’s Advocate, Qubilah Huddleston will lead an important discussion on how systemic racism has impacted black and indigenous lives throughout history, and how oppressive crimes have bled into our current health and wellness culture. Important questions will be raised as we work to define ways to mend the disproportionate levels of land equity and access to herbal knowledge.
