Crossroads University was developed for the purpose of sharing the ancient wisdom and cultural traditions that have supported indigenous people for thousands of years. Specifically, we are dedicated to the preservation of indigenous healing systems, ethnobotany, folk magic and folk healing traditions found in the Southern United States.
The relationship between Africans and Native Americans is a unique one. Initially introduced to each other in the chains of slavery, significant sharing of information occurred and an enriched melding of healing, religious and spiritual practices occurred in what is now referred to as the Southern rootworking tradition. In a day and age where people are feeling less in control of their lives than ever, more and more people are turning to African and Indigenous cultural traditions for healing and empowerment.
