Bear Grease is a traditional native american medicine. Black Bears have an unusual amount of fat on their bodies because they spend summers building up energy for hibernation. Over the winter Bears survive on this energy through their fat build up. For hunters who are eating the meat, the fat is not generally used. We have asked our network of butchers to carefully harvest and put aside Bear fat for us. As students of our elders we continue to learn the medicinal uses of Bear Grease.
