Special Guest: Brenda Holder

We have a special guest joining us this year: Brenda Holder, a Knowledge Keeper of Traditional Medicine, Owner of Mahikan Trails and Chair of Indigenous Tourism Alberta. A traditional Métis guide from the Kwarakwante of Jasper, Brenda will share her wisdom about how we can reconnect to ourselves and the earth, and learn from the teachings of our ancestors.

Brenda will share her wisdom on the lessons we’ve learned in this time, and perform a traditional tea ceremony to appreciate what is in our life now and the warmth that mint tea brings through our bodies. (Please have a cup of mint tea so that you can participate.)
