Red Road Youth Sweetgrass Harvest

September 27, 2021

This summer, our Red Road Youth had the opportunity to harvest sweetgrass under the direction of our Red Road Youth Leader Michael R Denny. They were unable to get together as one big group because of restrictions on group gatherings so they went in two separate trips. The first session was held in Cape Breton out near Forchu and the second session was held in Liverpool.

The students all enjoyed learning how to harvest this medicine and came away with some wonderful teachings and their own sweetgrass bundle.
