Medicine Picking - Wegis/Chaga
Time & Location
About the Event
On Saturday, Sept 26th at 1pm, we will be traveling about 30 minutes west of The Pas to collect Rat root or “Wegis” and any other medicines that nature might present such as “Chaga”. Here you will learn how to prepare Wegis in case you feel a cold coming on or have aches n pains. It is a great medicine to have on always have on hand.
Aboriginal people have been using medicinal plants from the Boreal forest traditionally for thousands of years. We would like to honour these teachings of the medicines Mother Earth provides.
Using the medicines that YOU have collected is a beautiful way to connect and honour Mother Earth!
Bring a friend! Suitable for all levels. Kids too!
Dress for cool, wet weather with your trowel, snippers or knife, twine, collecting bag and rubber boots. You might want to wear or bring your traditional ribbon skirt/shirt when touching the medicines (if you have one). We will travel in our own vehicles.
Cost: FREE (Donations welcome)
