Native Plants
Micah Roundstone smells a sage bundle while Linwood Tall Bull teaches students about medicinal purposes of plants at Washington Elementary School in Billings, Mont. on Sept. 17, 2012. A retired Northern Cheyenne ethnobotanist, Tall Bull studies the connections between people and plants, specifically in relation to his tribe. He spoke to students about those connections with the Northern Cheyenne, including how they�ve been used for medical, spiritual, religious and nutritional purposes over thousands of years.
