Simånan Åmut Natibu/ Sumwóólal Sáfeyal Falúw/Native Medicinal Week – Åmut Demonstrations & Tasting I
September 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Åmut is the indigenous Chamorro word for medicine. As part of the Indigenous Affairs Office’s long term commitment to supporting Inetnun Åmut yan Kutturan Natibu, a CNMI-wide non-profit organization dedicated to traditional medicinal practices, a series of Åmut Demonstrations are being held throughout the month of September.
These demonstrations provide a rare opportunity for members of the community, of all ages and cultural backgrounds, to engage in the preparation processes and applications of traditional Chamorro and Carolinian medicine. Participants will observe, interact with and learn from some of the foremost practitioners of these healing arts–fading art forms that are highly in need of preservation for our future generations. See an overview of IAO’s scheduled Åmut Demonstrations listed below.
