Gathering Medicine – Lii Bonn Michinn (Metis Traditions)
September 17 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$59.00
Learn about the blended healing traditions of Metis people & our plant medicine traditions, Right Relationships & Living in a Good Way.
The time of harvest is beginning, so let’s harvest in a good way – the way our grandmas knew! We will gather in the foothills near Bragg Creek to:
- identify plant species used for food and medicine
- learn to safely and responsibly harvest
- discuss the ceremony of giving tobacco & alternatives
- make medicine based on the plants available
Everyone is welcome to join us for the experience & learning of a traditional harvest. Please wear suitable clothing with layers and good hiking shoes/boots, and bring a small pack to carry bug spray, sun screen/hat, water bottle, portable tea mug and anything else you need to be safe. A ‘sit upon’ or small blanket, and cloth gathering bag are useful items to bring to this event.
Location will be provided the week before the harvest, participants must have their own transportation to/from the site. Ticket price is per adult/youth (13 years and older); children (under 12) are welcome to join with their adult(s). No pets at this event, please.
