|The Cahuilla, Chumash, Costanoan, Diegeño, Kawaiisu, and Maidu tribes of California use white sage for various purposes; as food, medicine, and burned as part of purification ceremonies. Today the leaves and stems of Salvia apiana are gathered, dried, and used for smudging by many tribes around the country. The Chumash and other California indigenous people are concerned about the overharvesting of this plant for commercial purposes.
