ᓀᐹᔭᒥᐦᐋᐃᐧᐣ nîpâyamihâwin- Christmas time

Since the beginning of time, the nehiyawak (Plains Cree) of this land have utilized various flora throughout the cold winter months. Some of these plants were utilized for medicine and  food; others for survival, as they played a pivotal role in assisting our people to trek through deep snow. 

 

To honour the past and integrate them into our daily lives, we present to you 4 new sanitizers and 1 new foam soap for a limited time. 

 

We present:

Wild low bush cranberries played a key role in keeping our people in good health, in the past and today. Long ago the berries were boiled down and the juice stored in a tightly sealed birch bark container for food and medicinal use. They were also dried and incorporated into pemmican along with Saskatoons. Modern day science has found that these berries are high in antioxidants and vitamin C.
