Cultural Camp Sep. 8-10
Are you interested in learning about Indigenous wilderness living skills this Fall? Have you ever cooked a goose over an open fire? What about setting up a duck blind or cooked bannock on a stick? Our 3 day hands-on experience includes learning about plants and trees for food and medicine, Indigenous subsistence harvesting methods, waterfowl preparation, building a duck/goose blind, 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) and a field trip to one of our sacred places to visit hundreds of rock carvings (petroglyphs). 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 the Anishinaabe Aki (Land of The Anishinaabe).
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 Curve Lake First Nation this Fall. The next ASWCO Cultural Camp will take place September 8th –10th, 2017.
