Our Offerings

We offer tailor-made sessions, programs, and services for all ages and audiences, from school presentations to keynotes and corporate trainings.

Workshops

Breaking the Chains

Understanding our past, present, and futures through the lens of cultural knowledge.

This workshop focuses on traditional teachings, such as the medicine wheel, to integrate our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies learning to use ancestral wisdom to guide and define us, rather than our trauma, so we can move forward in a good way.

7 Natural Laws

As Anishnawbe people, we learned by observing the animals and the natural world around us.

This workshop focuses on the innate algorithm of life and nature, which we used to guide us and bring balance to ourselves, our families, and our communities. Learn to live in harmony with these lessons grounded in natural philosophy.

Programs

Tending the Fire

A men's program: to strengthen, support, and heal.

Carrying the Water

A women's program: to empower, support, and heal.

Language Learning

In-person or online language learning that brings the heart and stories of the language to life. Go beyond the vocabulary and learn Anishnawbemowin, a language of this land rich in meaning, teachings, cultural knowledge and perspective, and deep connection to the land itself.

Join us and build your own relationship to the land by practicing traditional skills and learning how to both live off the land and live in harmony and protection of our natural world.

Services

Translation & Interpretation

Live in-person, online, or phone interpretation and written translation services in Anishnawbemowin/Ojibway, Oji-Cree, Cree, and Stoney.
