THPS and the High Park Nature Centre are presenting our November Full Moon Nature Walk with Carolynne Crawley
Saturday, November 9th, 3-6pm. Gather in the garden south of the Nature Centre, 375 Colborne Lodge Drive (see map on poster below).
Carolynne Crawley is a Mi’kmaw woman with African and Celtic ancestry and a forest therapy trainer and mentor. Crawley leads workshops in relationship building to develop and strengthen healthy, reciprocal relationships based upon Indigenous teachings that decolonize existing interactions with the Land. Her work includes facilitating the Kairos Blanket Exercise which educates settler peoples about the history of Land theft and genocide of Indigenous peoples. Crawley is passionate about her community work, which focuses on sharing teachings from the Land, knowledge of traditional skills such as harvesting foods and medicines, food justice (accessing healthy affordable foods) and relationship with self, others and the Land.
We will have an opening ceremony around a sacred fire with Donna Powless (Cayuga, Six Nations), Catherine Coming Day Tammaro (Wyandot Faithkeeper) and Joce Two-Crows Tremblay (Great Lakes métis), a guided nature engagement with Carolynne Crawley (Mi’kmaw with African and Celtic ancestry) followed by a poetic creative activity and corn husk doll making. We will then feast and have a closing with drumming and song.
