“Cannabis eases my pain from Chief and Council” #rantsfromtheranch

My mind is a free mind. Creator give me this life, and not once did he ever tell me that one individual is going to tell me what I can and can’t do here. This air is free. These plants are free. This is us. This is ours. Creator told us straightforward that we could use this. Put a little back if you’re going to take it. And don’t ever take too much – don’t take more than what we need. Those are our laws.

I’m datejie green

Today I’m speaking with Stacy Huff of Akwesasne Mohawk Territory. Stacy is a midwife trained in the healing powers of cannabis and other plant based traditional medicines. She’s also a grandmother and an activist with deep roots in land and water protection.

I’m meeting Stacy in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, where she and her children are visiting relations. She is here also as co-organizer of the Indigenous Cannabis Cup coming up from May 18-21.

Stacy starts me off with a tour of the Cup grounds. It’s a beautiful winters day. The sun is high and bright, and the wind is powerful.  Stacy tells me, “This North Wind, is known as “Kadaswat,” ever playful, sometimes vicious.” She says she’s grateful that today is a playful day, that Kadaswat must be excited about the topic of healing!

We retreat inside to get out of the cold and talk about indigenous cannabis.
