Indigenous Medicine

Indigenous peoples around the globe did not know about viruses and bacteria, or the germ theory of disease. However, they were just as interested as were Europeans in the ways to cure sickness. Natives developed complex spiritual ceremonies involving herbs, sweats, dancing, prayers, visitations by Gods, and chanting, often with the whole community attending, to help individuals recover from illness and disease.
