Stories of a Metis Herbalist – Marie Rose’s 80 Years on the Plains

Follow 80 years in the life of CCHA Herbal Elder Marie Rose Smith, a Metis herbalist & midwife who cared for the community of Pincher Creek in the early 1900’s. Marie’s great-great granddaughter shares the stories of her ancestor’s life – from her childhood in the trade caravan, to post-buffalo era rancher, respected matriarch, business woman, historian & healer. One of few female indigenous authors of her time, Marie Rose documented the practices of Metis women -those who provided housing, food, and medicine to their families from land-based resources and traditional skills. Through story, Marie Rose brings the medicines of the Metis people to life.
