HerbnHood was created to promote food sovereignty and traditional healing through natural, botanical products. As an Onkwehonwe, the Mohawk word for First People, I believe the earth provides all food and medicine needed for health and wellness. That is why I use high-quality, plant-based ingredients inspired by Onkwehonwe teachings. From medicinal teas and remedies to self-care products, HerbnHood uses organic, home-cultivated herbs grown with reverence for the land. 

HerbnHood products can be found on Etsy as well as retailers in Portland OR and Kahnawake, the Mohawk reserve where my family resides. I also vend at powwows, the Indigenous Marketplace, and farmers markets throughout the Pacific Northwest. It is an honor to be able to offer high-quality products to my community and share the Traditional Ecological Knowledge that has been passed down to me. Agriculture for the culture! --
