Residents of the North coast can learn more about how First Nations used local plants, roots and barks to create their own medicine in the past, as the Northwest Community College Elders in Residence program takes you on a Traditional Medicine Walk on Wednesday.
The three hour journey into the ways of traditional medicine gathering will depart from the parking lot of the NWCC Prince Rupert campus at 9 AM with participants walking through the city to explore a number of aspects of Tsimshian Culture, with a particular focus on how the natural elements available locally were used.
The Traditional Medicine Walk takes place from 9 AM to Noon on Wednesday, April 19th.
For more information on tomorrow's journey contact Kaarlene Lindsay at NWCC at 250-624-6054 extension 5722
