Grade Four/Five students attend class on the land with local knowledge keeper

June 7, 2023

Kapawe’no First Nation – Today the grade four/five class attended their studies on the land in a setting their ancestors lived many years ago.

What sets us apart for any school within 100’s plus KMs or more is the Land, Air, Water and now Fire teachings. Mother Earth continues to ask us to help, conserve, only take what you need and respect her. Our students are learning and sharing their views on environmental and cultural teachings.

Knowledge Keeper, Herman Surherland Sr navigated through the forest today at a location known to the nation within the territory. In the backyard of our Kapawe’no First Nation, students learnt medicines such as moss, blueberry root and muskeg tea leaves. How to pick them and what time of the year to pick them best. An amazing teaching from our Knowledge Keeper was given which gave students a chance to enjoy themselves while learning the traditional ways of our Nêhiyawak.
