Description

Skwxwú7mesh Traditional Plant Foods and Medicines Celebration

Please come and join us for a day of hands on learning about our Traditional Plant Foods and Medicines!

We will have a healthy, local and traditional foods lunch and fun workshops to learn about plant identification, harvesting, medicine making and more.

Please RSVP so we have an idea of how many people to plan for the workshops and the lunch.

This gathering is connected to a regional and national research project that is exploring the prevention and management of Type 2 Diabetes through culturally related initiatives. We will share more information on this research at the meeting. The funds to support this gathering are coming from the Canadian Institute for Health Research, Chief and Council and the Squamish Valley Education Department.

A schedule for the day will be posted soon. Hope to see you there and please spread the word in the Squamish Nation community!

Note: Parts of this event are open to everyone, and we encourage a broad range of participation, however because of where our funds are coming from, and the sacredness of the knowledge, that Squamish Nation members, and other First Nations people will be given priority. This also applies to the registration for the workshops and the traditional feast.

There will be lots of displays and demonstrations for all to enjoy and we encourage all to engage in the discussion about cultural knowledge renewal in regards to our traditional plants.
