Description
wah'pe canli, Arcostaphylos uva ursi

Usually mixed with red willow bark and tobacco and then flavored with other Native herbs to suit individual taste, it plays an important role in traditional spirituality.

The tannins present in the leaves have a very astringent quality and can also be used to reduce swelling; for medicinal use, an infusion is applied topically.

This Native American herb grows in thick mats under pine trees EVERYWHERE in the Black Hills.
