    Description

    Good morning. My name is Theodora Homewytewa. I'm from the Hopi tribe. And I feel naked. [laughter] I have no slides, nothing to show you, except for what I have here from my heart. That's how I am when I do my work. My tribe is here. I'm very very glad to see Max here this morning. (Max Taylor, Hopi Tribal Range Management) He's from the Hopi tribe. I thought I was going to be lost but I feel OK now. [laughter]

    My work is working with people. I am who they call a medicine woman. I gather my herbs and I work with plant life. I don't plant it and I'm not there helping it grow. So this conference has been very interesting for me. I wish I could plant some plants that I need for the people.

    But my way of doing it is, I collect my plants from the wild. I don't go out and collect a whole abundance of a certain plant. I go out there to see where it is and if what I need is there. Then I pick only what I need.
