The Spirit of Tobacco: Remembering The Legacy of Tobacco Through An Ancestral Lens

September 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for this class led by Yahna Tullis. Tobacco has long been held in high regard and considered to be sacred amongst Indigenous communities. It was a gift to humanity from the Great Creator and the ancestors used tobacco to connect and communicate with spirits. In today’s world, cigarettes and tobacco are amongst the leading causes of health issues in individuals. The commercial use of tobacco has contributed to the abuse of tobacco. Capitalism has devalued a once sacred plant to a so-called “cash cow” to be fed by addiction. It is through remembering the sacred history of tobacco, we can restore the reverence & respect for the plant and use it with care & intention. In this workshop, we will experience the spirit of tobacco through an ancestral lens with ritual and storytelling. Participants will receive information on how to grow and cure tobacco.


Yahna Tullis is a certified herbalist with training from Sacred Vibes Apothecary, a certified athletic trainer with a B.S. in Athletic Training from the University of Pittsburgh, a dancer, singer/songwriter, filmmaker, and visual artist. She integrates the knowledge from her education as an athletic trainer, a spiritual herbalist, and an artist to curate a holistic healing experience for the mind, body, and soul.
