    Name and Description Nation Location
    Cedar Tree: Customs, Preparation, and Uses
      Canada - Western
    Articles from U'mista News - The importance of cedar-bark to our past culture has left us many beautiful treasures from that era. The many beautiful baskets, mats and blankets that were produced for everyday uses, and the regalia that was made for purification ceremonies and the winter ceremonies. The Kwaguitl people are people having a great respect for the mother earth and give thanks to all its creatures great and small that provided life to its people. They had customs and prayers for all that they took from her. Many of those customs are still associated with the activity. The same remains true of the cedar-bark customs.
