WINSLOW-Though the lands around the Hopi Mesas, Little Colorado River, and Melgosa Desert which follows the river from Winslow to Cameron, seem tough and barren, the tribes of this area used to find abundance in those things we now take for granted. Homol'ovi Ruins State Park hosted a Hopi ethnobotany and medicinal plants workshop last weekend to teach interested locals how to identify native plants in the area for a variety of purposes.
