About the event

Indigenous  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.

We  will be traveling about 20 minutes north of The Pas to see the rare  carnivorous Pitcher Plants and to collect medicines that nature might  present in this bog area.  Then we will cross over Highway 10 on the  west side to the Root Lake Gravel Pit area where we will collect spruce  tips, Birch water, Labrador tea and kinnickinick.  I'll even show you  where the snake dens are out here!

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.

Using the medicines that YOU have collected is a  beautiful way to connect and honour Mother Earth!

Meet at:   Aurora Sacred Healing Centre 130 Third St. The Pas, Meet at 1pm.  We will travel in our own vehicles.  

Preparation:  Dress for cool, wet weather and have rubber boots.  Bring your own collecting equipment such as a small shovel or trowel, snippers, knife or small hatchet, hammer and collecting bags.   

Please bring a friend too since it will be suitable for all levels.  Kids welcome too!
