Second winter is upon us and we change how we do things. Our teams are no longer fanned out like in first winter but cohesively bound and working together in relatedness. It is time to focus on our responsibilities and obedience to Wahkowtowin and to natural law, which never changes.
Join Cree Knowledge Keeper Marilyn Dykstra to explore three of the natural laws. Learn how we can easily be connected to all our relations because we are all part of the circle, and we can all take on the important role of helper, Oskâpêwis.
We will participate in an activity while we enjoy Labrador tea.
This workshop is part of a monthly Wahkowtowin and Ways of Being series led by Knowledge Keeper Marilyn Dykstra. Each month, we will explore a variety of moon, pole and tea teachings in the Cree tradition.
Wahkowtowin – which translates to kinship – highlights how relationships, communities and the natural world are all interconnected.
Participants will discover and reflect on their connections with each other, with balance and with human rights through teachings and a traditional tea.
