Native American Sage Mythology

Sage is one of the most important Native American ceremonial plants, used by many tribes as an incense and purifying herb. Sweetgrass symbolizes protection and healing in many Native cultures, and is considered to drive out evil influences and ward off bad luck. Sage is burned as a spiritual cleanser before many traditional ceremonies, and is also one of the herbs frequently included in medicine bundles and amulets.

Sage is also used as a clan symbol in some Native American cultures. Tribes with Sage Clans include the Hopi, whose Sage Clan is named Siwapi or Siwapi-Wungwa, and the Pueblo tribes of New Mexico.
