Write a compelling Opinion or Editorial (Op-Ed) piece for your local newspaper based on the following question prompt:
Do you believe there are ethical issues related to the use and harvesting of botanicals and herbs that have deep cultural connections to Indigenous peoples (e.g., white sage, American ginseng, kava kava, Northern maidenhair, etc.)? Why or why not? What are some of the perspectives that Indigenous Americans might have regarding the use of such botanicals and herbs outside of their community and philosophy?.
Reflection should be between 600 words.
Your personal position on the issue needs to be stated along with at least three factors that led you to your position AND where your attitudes, beliefs, and information on the topic/position came from (e.g., family, peers, school, political affiliation, media, ethical viewpoints, etc.) restate your position and propose a call to action.
Include a Title and make sure your essay is free of grammatical, spelling, and syntactical errors.
