Anecdotal: Typha pollen can be rendered into yellow face paint. Its fronds make up into baskets and headdresses; it can be tied up into prayer bundles, on to prayer sticks or fashioned into pipes. It is deeply associated with Water Medicine. Mats woven from Typha can be hung to entice rain and the ripe cattails are shaken to conjure clouds filled with rain. While doing so Typha affords protection against lightning, also true when it is put in shoes. The spirit within Typha is invoked to address endopsychic wounds, the severe attrition of spiritual energy, injured psyches as well as issues pertaining to expression or personal shields of protection. It is appropriate to illness from Fire Medicine and matters of the heart. Typha can be carried to remedy distaste for intimate relationships. Uncountable groups use Typha fronds to cover the ground where rituals are to take place. The attributes of Typha are brought to these rituals. Typha is deeply tied to the spirit of abundance and can intervene when abundance is lacking.
