A perennial plant native to the United States, Echinacea (E. angustifolia &- E. purpurea) was used by the Plains Indians more than any other plant. Also known as purple coneflower or black sampson, Echinacea has been used extensively for its many health benefits. Another plant highly revered by American Indians was the versatile Golden Seal (Hydrastis canadensis). Often referred to as "yellow root," the brilliant golden juice was extracted from its roots and used as an ornamental dye for clothes, weapons, face paint and as traditional herb for health concerns. Early settlers adopted the use of Golden Seal which, along with Echinacea, quickly became a mainstay of American herbalism.
