From medicine walks and traditional plant gathering, to small game hunts and pow-wows – our On-the-Land Learning program provides Indigenous peoples with opportunities to connect and learn from the land through a variety of hands-on experiences.
Indigeneity has often been a question of walking in a duality of worldviews, having the ability to practice two-eyed seeing and find our place in the world. The natural world is integral to our well-being as people. All human beings, across all cultures, are inherently connected to the earth and the land on which we occupy.
Our On-the-Land Learning program creates the opportunity to connect and learn from the land through a variety of seasonal activities. Our program offers medicine walks and traditional plant gathering guided by the Elders on our Wisdom Keepers Council, as well as snowshoeing, tobogganing, survival skills, canoeing, fishing on ice or open water, small game hunts, gardening, open fire cooking, water ceremonies, outdoor ceremonies, pow-wows and more.
