The Song of Metis Women Gathering

Reflections on our Gathering: wood smoke, bannock and blueberries, red tobacco ties, orange sparks from a night fire, sage smudge, women’s drum songs, remembering our Grandmothers, the feel of dew on the grass, horn rattles, prayers on tobacco smoke, Gzhe manidoo nga-noonaa, fry bread, prayers to Creator, a critical eye to history, a Cree song, ceremony, powerful women, silent women, horn rattles, the starblanket, white birch and maples, deerskin, taking the lessons in a story.

Earth, Culture, Wellness

The Metis Women’s Circle presented at McMaster University the concept for traditional medicine planting at Westfield Heritage Village.
