HOUMA ANCESTRAL RESOURCES
Medicinal knowledge and Language resources
Click on the first image or button below for a condensed Houma Dictionary searchable excel sheet compiled from a variety of resources.
Below are 3 PDFs that document ancestral Houma medicines and explain the medical terms. Referenced from Daniel E. Moerman's NATIVE AMERICAN ETHNOBOTANY.
This PDF has the scientific names for local plants used in medicines, how they were used, and the common name for it. Forthcoming, hopefully the traditional Houma names will be added.
