This activity will guide families on holistic ways to share this world by finding balance within ourselves, between one another and throughout our surroundings. Cree knowledge keeper Ernie Cardinal will share teachings of the medicine wheel and its main medicines such as sage, cedar, sweet grass, tobacco and willow fungus. Following these teachings Ernie will guide families in making a deer hide medicine bag to hold their own medicines to strengthen themselves and their communities.
Led by: Spirit of the Children Society’s Youth Enhancement Program Manager, Ernie Cardinal, from the Cree nation. In collaboration with New Westminster Museum and Archives.
