  • Description


    Centre for Aboriginal Living & Learning)

    Indigenous family practising our culture in a modern context. We help many people in our community, young and older. We hunt, fish, gather, dance, sing, drum and live on the mountain side of Atlin Lake and have a land-based healing camp on the Nakina River.

    We are looking for people who are open and hard working to help us at our land-based healing centre.

    As we get older and some of our children have moved out, we've found we need your help to keep this good thing going!!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live a traditional life in a modern setting. We hunt, fish, gather from our land and water, and we have computers and internet!

    You will learn how to hunt/harvest skin, cut and prepare moose meat and fish for freezing, canning and drying in a traditional smokehouse. We also gather berries and medicines as they are in season.

    We are a part of the Taku Qwan Dancers, so dance in festivals near our community and in our community.

    I also sew traditional clothing and can do beadwork and make moccasins when time permits.

    I am also a storyteller and activist, focusing particularly on the rights of indigenous women and children. I am also an Ojibway Pipe Carrier, sing and drum.

    Bryan is also a carver, artist and is working on completing his first book and is an amazing writer.

    We also recently bought a small rugged saw mill and will need help falling and milling trees as Bryan intends to continue building hunting/gathering structures out within our territory.

    Finally, we live a sober (alcohol and drug free) life and can share that experience with you.

    I am Ojibway and Bryan is Tlingit – we are a Canadian indigenous family.

    Bryan and I have been married 25 years and our home is a beacon of hope in our community. We have young adult children of our own living at home and/or nearby and we also foster children.

    As we’ve aged, we find we need help with the work necessary both inside and outside our home to make this all work.

    I really encourage you to contact me as my photos will show you how we live an amazing life!
