Re: [SCA Newcomers] sca sage project
- Are you bundling American or European Sage? American White Sage is tradionally bundled by Native Americans with red string or yarn. Its primarily used for cleansing the body'e energy and "spirit". I have cooked chicken with sage, kept bugs away, and their are some medicinal uses. Here are some websites that might help you.
Type Sage Plant into a search engine like yahoo and you should find a lot of info.

Subject: [SCA Newcomers] sca sage project
I am kinda new and kinda old to the SCA I started at Moorish Tavern in
ND (great event:-) in '99. I have been on the fringe while my Mom and
Brother have gotten very involved. This year my Mom is in charge of
A&S and she wants me to put together a project to show how to bundle
sage. I can do that, I am having trouble finding documentation of its
uses. I know it is used for culinary, Medicinal and to keep bugs away,
just cannot prove it. Any help would be appreciated.
