  • “My grandmother is Métis, but my family never taught my sister and me about our Indigenous roots… [she] used to give us Rat Root and Echinacea when we were sick and tell us where to find them. This course for me symbolizes the beginning of learning about my heritage and my journey to finally connecting with something that’s felt in line with my soul since being a little girl. I’m very, very grateful.”
