The Canoe Journey Herbalists Project: questions and reflections
March 24 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM$5
The mission of the Canoe Journey Herbalists project is to offer free herbal healing
support; ranging from first aid to foot baths, offering herbal medicines and hands-on healing to participants as we travel alongside the Intertribal Canoe Journey. At its core, this project is Indigenous-led, inspired, and works to continue to prioritize the wants and needs of the Coastal Salish community. But as a project that provides a pathway for both Indigenous Healers and non-Native allies to offer their hands in service, side by side, how do we create a community care space that also maintains a sense of cultural safety? This workshop will share stories of our strengths and our struggles, as well as questions and reflections for all who of us working towards right relationship with land, healing, and indigenous community.
Presenters: Rhonda Lee Grantham, a member of the Cowlitz Nation, and Sophie Geist, a settler on Steh-Chass and Squaxin land.
Please bring $5 and a healthy snack to share.
