Learn historical medicines of the boreal forest from a Cree lineage

Spend time with us and we will share the amazing teachings from the land! Join us on a walk with a knowledgeable guide who will share the fascinating historical medicines of the boreal forest from a Cree lineage. You may choose to spend a little more time in one of our hands-on workshops where you can learn what to do with the medicines that you have identified and take your made treasures home with you!

We are a Cree Iroquois company doing what we love!

We enjoy sharing our Culture, Traditions and our Heritage!
