Finding Joy: Art Therapy Retreat

Métis means a person who self-identifies as Métis, is distinct from other Indigenous peoples, is of Historic Nation ancestry, and is accepted by the Métis Nation.”

What does it mean to be of Historic Métis Nation ancestry? One must have an ancestral connection to the historic Métis community.  This is more than proving that one has an ever-so-great “Indian” ancestor.  The requirement is for an ancestral connection to a “Métis” ancestor.  Further, that Métis ancestor must have lived, used and occupied the Historic Métis Nation Homeland.

Borrowed from the document “Who are the Métis in the Métis National Council? By Jean Teillet

We look forward to showing you around the guest house.  You will appreciate the details in the rooms and décor.  Wonder around the land with us, along the Whitemouth River and learn about medicinal plants and wild edibles.

Coming in the fall of 2020, the river round house and teaching lodge will be an exclusive off-grid experience for those who truly want to disconnect.  The round house sits adjacent to the sweat lodge that was gifted to the land by Creator under the guidance of elder, Dennis Morrison (Bebahmoytung)

Spiritual Caregiver, Muskrat-Ode-dam (Clan).
