Inaugural 420 Fest

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).

Twin

Captivating North American audiences by road and by the river for the past 10 years, TWIN has developed a sound unto themselves ranging from deeply hypnotic folk storytelling to heavy hitting punk anthems and everything in between!

“TWIN creates a vast array of music, TWIN is intense, TWIN is intimate, TWIN absorbs then releases everything it comes in contact with.” Matt Vend, Mahala South African.

Land-marking an international canoe tour concert series, with 4 full-length albums and a growing catalog of EPs and live videos, TWIN is always sharing songs and stories of the places they’ve been and the places they’re going to.

“Similar to Bob Dylan’s trademark Never-ending Tour ‘hypno-alt-folk’ act Twin perpetually travels by canoe across the rivers of North America…” Seamus Hamilton-Pattison, Stylus Magazine.

Their vision is to create a river tour ‘network’ across North America and beyond bringing people back to the water to celebrate and heal. The ‘tour’ is a call to gather at the river’s edge to share music, stories, food, seeds, and ideas. The ‘armada’ is an open venue for sharing information and heritage heirloom seeds so that we can learn to become more self-sufficient, protect our food sovereignty and retain the knowledge of land-based peoples.

The tour promotes the Urban Seed Bank initiative and TWIN’s River Music Armada Seed Share / Elder’s Project.
