The Indians called plantain white man's foot because the plant, with its rosette of ribbed leaves and its seed stalks somewhat resembling miniature cattails, seemed to follow the white settlers wherever they went.
Plantain leaf is a vulnerary (a wound plant) and in everyday life is used in salves for wounds and cuts. The Shoshone Indians made poultices of the whole leafs and applied them for battle bruises. The Indians of southern Massachusetts applied plantain leaves both for wounds and to draw out the poison of snakebites. Plantain has tannin and allantoin.
