Native American Chicory Mythology

Chicory is a wild-flower that was not originally native to North America– it was brought over from Europe, probably in the 1700′s or late 1600′s. Because of this, chicory does not play a large role in Native American mythology. But like other newcomer plants, such as dandelions, chicory did become part of 18th and 19th century Native American traditions. The chicory plant was associated with the sky in some tribes (due to its sky-blue color), and chicory roots were used as a medicine herb among eastern tribes.
