Medicine of the People – Our Story
LEONARD MARCUS/VIRGINIA BOONE-MARCUS
Virginia and I met 20 years ago and started Medicine of the People in 1995. Recently we changed part of our company name. We were Medicine of the people “A life way revolution” and now we are Medicine of the People “A Native America Made Product”. For us “A Native America made product” represents a way of making products that has our people’s needs in mind. It is a way of saying that we can make products that are distinctly ours. It is about being original, developing products with respect for our culture and the traditions that were passed on to us. It is about finding our voice and creating positive change.
In 2013 we moved our operations into a commercial site in Tucson Arizona. Here we are able to put even more effort into the making of our products and into the creation of new one’s as well. Our philosophy of love and respect for the world is the same that we use in making our products.
We hand make and send our products all over the country and to a handful of other countries as well. I believe we are the most traditional Native herb company in the country that is consistently producing high quality products and wholesaling them far and wide. As we are going forward my mind is not on increasing profit margins it is on increasing our quality and creating new even more wonderful products.
Thank you for your business over the last 20 years!
