Fall Harvest

Fall is the season when the Anishinabek traditionally prepared for the long winter ahead.  A wide variety of techniques have been used and shared from one generation to the next.  The 7th Annual Fall Harvest hosted by Kenjgewin Teg provided an excellent opportunity for students to begin to develop an understanding of Anishnabek culture and traditions.  

At the Fall Harvest students learned about:

  • harvesting wild game
  • trapping bits and tips
  • preserving fruits and vegetables
  • fish harvesting
  • jams and jellies
  • male and female drumming
  • apple harvesting
  • traditional teachings with Elders and/or community members

Most students agreed that the best part of the day was the traditional food samples!
