Tradition holds that the wood of the cedar tree holds powerful protective spirits for the Cherokee Tribe. It is believed that the "Creator" placed their spirits in a newly created tree. This tree was named a-tsi-na tlu-gv {ah-see-na loo-guh} or Cedar tree.



Many Cherokee carried a small piece of cedar wood in their medicine bags worn around the neck.



Cedar wood has been placed by the Cherokee above the entrances to their homes to protect against the entry of evil spirits.



When you smell the aroma of the Cedar tree or gaze upon it standing in the forest, remember that if you are Tsalagi / Cherokee, you are looking upon your ancestor.



Cherokee women were given a tea made from the inner bark of the Wild Black Cherry to relieve pain.



The Flambeau Ojibwa prepared a tea of the bark of Wild Cherry Tree for coughs and colds, while other tribes used a bark for diarrhea or for lung troubles.



The Cree Indians used an infusion of the inner bark of The Aspen Tree as a remedy for coughs.
