dc.description Keetoowah Cherokee medicine has never been documented, and the Western Band of Cherokees (Tahlequah, OK) have kept the traditions of the Keetoowahs through the bloodline of Redbird Smith. Crosslin F. Smith is the grandson of Redbird, and a well respected and international educator and practitioner of traditional Keetoowah Cherokee Medicine. Dr. Noé has been practicing Cherokee Medicine under Elder Smith's tutelage for 25 years. In Elder Smith's practice (Vian, OK) he treats native peoples with plants, rituals and prayers for such diseases as cancer without any western medicine applications (many native peoples refusing any western medical care). This research project is to collect botanical specimen that are used by Elder Smith and from the sites he collects from in OK. The collection is housed at UBCNM's new Medicinal Plant Herbarium. The new Herbarium is housed on the 6th floor of the HSC building, room 608. The University of Bridgeport Seed Grant Award financed the herbarium equipment, botanical field equipment and one collection trip to Vian, OK in July 2011. en_US
