This design by community based artist Autumn Dawn Gomez (Comanche / Taos Pueblo) is inspired by a photo taken by Carrie Wood, as she was laying harvested Cota plants out to dry. The tall, delicate, yellow flowering plant was grown from seed at Full Circle Farm, an urban farm project shared by 3 Sisters Collective. It will be used for tea, known as Cota Tea, ch’il awééhi, Greenthread, or simply Indian Tea). It can be mixed into a refreshing cold option, or a warm healing tea. It is a staple to tribes across the Southwest, for it keeps the body in balance and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Autumn Dawn's design honors the perseverance of food and plant medicine knowledge as we move into this new era of rematriation.
