MEDICINAL KNOWLEDGE

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.
