Potawot Walking Trails
Ku’ wah-dah-wilth has approximately 2 miles of walking trails that meander around the wetlands, uplands, basket and textile garden, food garden, and through the meadows and orchards. The Walking Map below illustrates the walking routes and their distances.
The Life Blood of the Tree
This land has been dedicated to the people for healing.
We are standing on a special area of healing as our trees have many healing powers.
The roots are firmly planted in Mother Earth, bringing her water and milk to nourish her.
We have our life blood from this Mother Earth, and so does the tree.
The Trails are made of the life blood of the trees, honor it as you walk on it knowing that it is giving you renewed life and strength.
Plants along the Trails have great healing powers in them and the people have used them for generations.
Learn from them and accept their gifts to you.
We have a powerful Earth Mother.
Thank you creator for this land, we are one with you.
