Grandmother Teaching

December 1, 2021

On November 30th, the Grandmother Teaching workshop was held in Membertou. The workshop was open to the first 20 grandmothers who were interested in participating. The session began with the grandmothers making moss bags under the guidance and facilitation of Kate Jadis and Nina Kent. After the bags were complete, Jane and Paulina Meader held a pipe ceremony to bless the bags. They also shared Grandmother teachings with everyone. After the session, any grandmothers who were interested were also given the opportunity to take part in a naming ceremony.

It was a great success and we will continue to offer events such as this in the coming months.
