Sage is one of the four sacred medicines commonly used by Indigenous peoples of this area. The other three sacred medicines are cedar, sweetgrass and tobacco. Sage will be available just inside the Aki Studio doors after all performances. If you are unsure of how to use Sage and/or would like to learn more about it, please reach out to a Paprika volunteer.
