A perennial plant native to the United States,
Echinacea ( Echinacea angustifolia) was used as aremedy by the Plains Indians more than
any other plant. Also known as purple coneflower or black simpson, Echinacea has been used
extensively for its many health benefits.
Another highly revered plant by American Indians was the
versatile Golden Seal (Hydrastis canadensis). Often referred to as "yellow
root", they used the brilliant golden juice extracted from its roots as an ornamental
dye for their clothes and weapons, paints for their faces, and as a traditional herb for
health concerns. Early settlers adopted the use of Golden Seal which along with
Echinacea quickly became a mainstay of American herbalism.
