Blending Ancient Indigenous Knowledge with Western Herbalism in business
Many Indigenous people who own businesses say they “live and work in two worlds”. We must learn to intertwine and honor the cultural protocols that are entrenched in Indigenous living and working along with western business culture. This can be difficult. As an Indigenous woman I bring purpose, shared prosperity, sustainability, and legacy to the workplace. My work and my personal life intertwine two cultures as I do my work. I have a willingness to share Indigenous herbal knowledge and culture with the world, but this comes with a deeper purpose as well to help combat the stereotyping of Indigenous people in business.
