In Lakhota we call this the Bear's Medicine. It was gathered during travels as it grows outside our territory. Now it is acquired through trade and gathering. Bear root, gets its nickname from the people observing bears coming out of hibernation. When a bear comes out of hibernation, it will eat Osha root to cleanse its digestive system and boost its immune system. The bear will chew the root into a watery paste, spit it on its paws and wash its face and whole body with the herb. Osha root is a powerful antiviral and antibacterial herb.
