Cultural Camp Sept. 22-24


Are you interested in learning about Indigenous wilderness living skills this Fall? Have you ever cooked a traditional meal over an open fire? What about playing our traditional games? Our 3 day hands-on experience includes learning about the traditional language, the effects of climate change and impact it has on our life on the land, learn to dance our Anishinaabe dances including Men’s Woodland and Women’s Appliqué (Old Time Scrub), play baaga’adowe (Ojibwe lacrosse-stick ball game). We will listen to the wisdom and stories of long ago by our elders. You will be able to touch, see, hear, smell and taste what the Great Lakes has to offer. Welcome to Mskaaknetoon Gdo Shkode (Light your fire).

Do you know anyone of the age 13 and older that is interested in this type of experience? We want them to come and spend time with us in M’Chigeeng First Nation this Fall. This Cultural Camp will take place September 22nd-24th, 2017.
