I am excited to offer these opportunities to you to experience and learn about local culture through my Ojibwe tribal lens, such as:

 

  • offerings to the water beings of Ktichigaming (meaning big lake for Lake Superior)

  • offer a gift of sameh (tobacco), picking up rocks to paint

  • harvesting your own medicines (sage, sweetgrass, cedar, tobacco)

  • making a sweetgrass braid

  • participating in a smudging ceremony (using sage or sweetgrass)

  • making a medicine bag to put your plant medicines in

  • harvesting red dog wood and making dreamcatcher

  • learning some hand drum songs around the campfire

  • other options as available

Strawberry Moon Retreat

Welcoming all genders and ethnicities ~

 

This will be a great time for releasing energies that no longer serve you and to amplify the power of your manifestations with other like minded folks. It will also be an amazing time to pray for Mother Earth.

 

I will be your hostess and personal gateway for this magical event. I am Standing Strong of the Anishinaabe people, and I am delighted to invite you to this Sacred Land that I call Niibing (it is summer). The Sacred Land covers 135 acres located next to Ktichigaming (Lake Superior) with watershed running through the property. It is a very beautiful and peaceful space that is secluded enough for complete Spiritual privacy. The retreat will be guided through Spirit.

 

Activities

Thursday (late afternoon) – making hand drums (you need 4 days to bless drum before the birthing ceremony on Monday morning – extra $200 for materials).

Friday - harvesting amethyst at an amethyst mine, picking up grandfathers (stones for sweat lodge) and firewood.

Saturday - building Sweat Lodge. Preparing medicine garden for plant medicines.

Sunday - having Sweat Lodge Ceremony on Sunday.

Monday - Drum Birthing Ceremony and any other final activities before people head home.

Throughout the weekend, we can be learning hand drumming songs. If there is no fire ban, there will be evening fires that you can connect with Grandmother Moon. The participants may also be offering activities throughout the weekend. Please bring appropriate clothing for the working aspects of the weekend.

 

Dates – June 20 to 24, 2024 (earlier arrival and later departure can be organized)

 

Location - Niibing Tribal Tours, 356 Little Trout Bay Road, Neebing, Ontario, Canada. Thunder Bay is an international airport.

 

Accommodations – Bring your tent. Some participants have rented camper trailers. They may have an extra bed or two. Drinking water will be available. Comfort station for toilet/sink. Swimming in Lake Superior available. Nutritious meals will be provided by caterer.

 

Cost - $550CA per person to cover the costs of the catering, comfort station and drinking water. There is an additional cost of $200 for hand drum materials if you choose to make one.
