Amazing work and a deep presentation! Loved the blueberry poster and the seasonal calen
Traditional Harvesting poster is very cool!
The connection is cutting out a bit—maybe if some folks turn their cameras off it will improve?
I don’t know if it is just me but the connection is choppy for me. Cutting the videos that aren’t active might help.

Thanks all, we're working on it
Thank you for your hard work with these projects. Though my capacity is limited personally, I will always try to support Indigenous communities where I can. Miigwetch!
Is the moose hanger made out of steel beams?
is it okay to take screenshots??
Awesome initiative for the community! I love the moose hanger and butcher shop. Is there large freezer space?
hi everyone, I’d love to do these types of projects in my community. I’d love to learn more and n how I could start that. I have to step out to another meeting but please contact me so I can learn more. Miigwetch
Bernice, what community are you from and what is your tribal council if I may ask?
Yes the moose hanger was fabricated out of stainless steel
Yes we will have a large cooler and freezer
There was a fund through MECP from the ministry that was forwarded to tribal councils to access for food redistribution capital (for food preservation equipment like canning supplies, smokers, freeze dryers, etc.)
LOVE the recipe piece!
I wish I could attend moose camp : ) It looks like an amazing project!
thank you for sharing all the amazing pictures
Has anyone else done readiness assessments in their communities?
Back at 2:23 folks!
Lost the artwork. It is on the brady bunch screen now.
omg - pandemics as portals! this has great meaning to me
I am seeing the artwork. we're all in the same boat
I see it now

yes underground greenhouses!!
Agreed that's a fascinating idea to do underground greenhouses. Like Earthship homes perhaps.
Thank you for your words, Winona. I am truly inspired with your wisdom.
plant a seed, grow a blessing
So nice to her discussion on Hemp Farming. So much discussion has been on the medical/recreational side of Canibus, but we do not hear enough about hemp, in the areas of agriculture, housing constructions, clothing manufacturing, chemical development, etc. Thanks Paul Capon
Right on Paul!!
I agree Paul, on how we can learn so much more about hemp. We have to reduce our dependence on plastics; and replace things like plastic tarps with hemp. Hemp can return to the ground. Plastic cant.
I agree, Cynthia, and about most of our clothing. Taproot Farms here in Nova Scotia is doing exciting work with reintroducing hemp and flax as fibre sources (not dietary but that too) to be used in clothing and household fabrics. Food and textiles….all connected to the earth.
I LOVE that!!!
a strong prophetic voice for change, as idols tumble, and horses too!
Can people tour Winona's farm
chi-miigwech for these powerful words 👏 very inspired rn
I have been to Winona's Hemp Farm! Please go if you have the chance to support it <3
Any one have information or resources for building underground green houses?

caribou hair, brilliant!
It uses geothermal heat
Small scale food storage, think like a cache can use barrels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LQ6HgCwm2M
how can we nurture these skills in youth that have been disconnected from ancestral knowledge?

Thank you all for this hope. I am so glad to know these initiatives exist and are so successful!
I cant unmute
Has there been any attempt for wild permaculture in the communities? If so, what have been the successes? I’m particularly interested in the medicine plants.

fixed Carrie, try again
I think Aroland First Nation has moved into blueberry picking and sales. Thanks Paul Capon
yes that happened with our water potato (wapato) lands flooded and they came back
Is the moose hunt was cancelled in red rock? If so, are people still going out on their own? if so, how are they being supported?
My aunty Julie has attempted to plant wild rice seeds in Atikameksheng First Nation near Sudbury Ontario.
In regards to readiness assessments: (mentioned by one of the presenters.) What exactly did the readiness assessment address: Gardening knowledge? And I'm interested in the questions asked.
Thank you for organizing this virtual talk. This is deep and beautiful.
