found this http://faculty.fortlewis.edu/korb_j/global%20fire/fire%20and%20culure%20and%20appalachia.pdf

Quote Herbs represented in the pollen record in pre-Columbian times included goosefoot (Chenopodium), plantain (Plantago), sumpweed (Iva), purslane (Portulaca), and maize (Zea mays).


seems to be an analysis of a bog site in the appalachian / blue mountain / western North Carolina region.

Good Afternoon Tas and Pitrow,
 
 
Incan Violet Corn.  
 
 
Yerba Mate Vessel for sipping this caffefine type tea hot beverage  - Argentina and Altos de Paraguay ( Hill Country).
 
 
Yerba Mate - Paraguay and Argentina.  
 
 
Growing Yerba Mate.
 
 
Firstly, I too have come across a couple of very interesting tidibts of information and a few websites on the subject of Pre-Columbian Herbs and Gastronomy which perhaps shall prove interesting as well as a good source to obtain seeds too.
 
1) www.enotes.com ( Mayan Vanilla which was combined with Chocolate, Uncountable Chili Pepper Varieties, Marigold used in skincare and Achiote amongst numerous other foods and herbs. )  
 
 
 
 
 
6) www.nativeseeds.org ( Anishinaabeg Ojibwe )
 
7) www.arcticharvest.com ( Native Arctic Inuit Foods )
 
8) www.prophecyyandsurvival.com ( white corn )
 
9) www.cookingpost.com ( New Mexico´s Pueblo Santa Ana Tribe: blue corn )
 
There is also a Bibliography on each and thus, further research can be accomplished.
 
Have a lovely wkend.
Margi.

Tas,
 
There is also a very interesting website called the Cherokee Messenger:
 
 
 
They employed uncountable herbs and barks for medicinal purposes too.
 
 
Hope this assists.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Kind regards.
Margi.
