Cold weather & snow means the wood stoves are fired up. Nice that the stove doubles as a place to melt oils.... on the go right now is a small batch of the simple, Plantain Salve. #woodstove #salve #herbalsalve #woodheat #snow #winter #selfsufficient #herbalmedicine #allpurposesalve #firstaidsalve #herbalist #plantain

Its very peaceful back at the inland lakes..... and beautifully colourful too, even on a grey, rainy day. #lakes #inlandlakes #reflection #fallcolours #waterlillies #evergreens #oaks #sanddunes #peace #solitude #nature #naturephotography #beautifuldestinations #waterislife #vesi #biish

Back at the inland lakes today and I climbed up to the tallest point (or close to it) of the sand dunes off of Lake Huron. First pic is off to my right, you can see one of the inland lakes off in the distance, with more trees behind it. The slope to climb up here is about 70 degrees, so I climbed up on all fours and slid down on my butt, lol. It was raining and the leaves were slippery and sliding seemed like a wiser (and more fun) option that trying to walk down a mostly treeless slippery steep slope. The second pic is off to my left, a good view of the dunes. Lake Huron is off in the distance, but I don’t think you can see it in the pic. #adventures #nevertooldtohavefun #climb #sanddunes #lakehuron #inlandlakes #whataview #rainyday #rainydayfun

I had a fairly productive day today (despite the IG drama). I was able to sort and organize soaps, salves and teas and figure out what needs to be made/replace. Had a Consultation this morning followed by blending up a custom tincture and tea blend, pictured here: Oats, Lavender, Rose Petals, Hawthorn, Ginger and dried Strawberries to help heal weary, stressed, broken hearted people. Isn’t that most of us in these times? Carry your own and each other’s hearts tenderly, but also with honesty and integrity. Miigwetch, Kiitos to those who tirelessly speak and act against discrimination and oppression. Your strength and courage is what will help ensure that better things will come to be. #kiitos #miigwetch #raiseyourvoice #wearyhearts #hearthealth #heartherbs #honeypothrrbals #herbaltea

In support of the Haudenosaunee hunters at Short Hills Provincial Park who must struggle to assert their inherent rights to hunt. . In support of indigenous people who must struggle to assert their inherent rights to harvest Wild Rice- Mnoonin- at Pigeon Lake and elsewhere. . In support of indigenous people everywhere whose traditional way of life and land use is outlawed or otherwise threatened by settler governments and settler communties. #mnoomin #wildrice #deerhunt #deercull #shorthills #pigeonlake #traditionalharvest #indigenousrights #foodsovereignty #settlersinsupportofindigenoussovereignty

Attn midwives and supporters, please help this Black Taino student raise funds to be a student at the Luna Tierra Birth Centre in Texas!!! #Repost @babymamahood with @get_repost ・・・ Hey IG! I was accepted to Luna Tierra Birth Center, a birth center in El Paso, Texas serving birthing people on both sides of the border! I am super excited and nervous. Diving into birthwork as a student midwife has many challenges. A lot of those challenges could be fixed with community support and money. In choosing a place to study midwifery, I felt compelled to work with birth people at the border through Luna Tierra. Luna Tierra is a WOC led birth center. This felt especially important to me. AND with the current adminstration being a total loss when it comes to humanitarian rights for all people, I feel especially call to work there. As a Spanish speaking person and as a Black person, my goal is to learn, to grow, and to serve black and brown people as a midwife. This work feels especially important and so does motherhood. So, I am happy to say that the center is willing to work with me and Zion as we dive more deeply and intently to the sacred ceremony of pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period. It is crucial that we support black and brown student midwives, so that we can collectively heal black and brown birth on Earth. To me, the is one of the foundations of liberation for black and brown people.' Funds will be used directly for education, housing, and travel expenses. I’ve already raised $2000 in two weeks and I have about ten more days to raise $3000. Please help by liking, commenting, and sharing this post. Link is in the picture & bio.

Finished smoking the hide earlier this week, made this pouch tonight out of my first successful buckskin! I think most of this hide will be made into pouches and gifted to people as it feels right to me. But I already have a few ideas in mind! #buckskin #buckskinpouch #medicinepouch #crafts #leathercrafts #diy #braintan #bushcraft

My day in pictures. Gathered some Zhgtaagin (chaga, no pictures) from the swamp and dug up some Elecampane Root (Inula helena) from the garden. Had a great time at the Friendship Centre in Sarnia making tea with Zhgtaagin and making a cough syrup with Elecampane, Purple Asters, Turmeric, Ginger, Onions and honey. And started the day skinning and quartering this doe, the old man’s second of the season. Miigwetch to the Friendship Centre for the invite! As always, I had a lot of fun, especially with kids getting in on the action! #coughsyrup #herbalsyrup #elecampane #chaga #turmeric #aster #coughmedicine #herbalist #selfsufficient #diy #subsistencehunter #hunting #whitetaildeer
