Monographs of Medicinal Plants of Boriken

The following are researched local plants compiled by WOIW students on the island of Borikén. These are native to the Caribbean, brought by Africans, Spaniards and various immigrants to the island. A majority of the plants are Afro-Taino based in traditional use and folklore. This list will continue to grow as we continue to research and upload our experience with plant medicines of the land. Enjoy such good work!
