There will be a traditional medicines workshop for youth at the Beatrice Wilson Health Centre on August 22nd. The overall goal is to have indigenous youth learn about medicines that are a part of their culture as many of them may not use these medicines in their everyday life.
The class will be taught by Elders John George and Lillian Sinclair and the class runs from 1:30 to 3:30 PM. Students will learn about traditional medicines like cedar, sweet grass, and red willow and the will get to take a bag of medicine home with a smudge kit. The workshop is open to youth 12 and over and it’s free to attend with 15 spots available. To sign up or for more information call 204-627-7410.
