Get your calendars out and note the time and location of some planned activities in Norway House
- Water Walk team arriving in Norway House on the evening of July 10th
- Lake Winnipeg Water offering will take place on July 11th. There is time needed to prepare the bundle that will be offered to the lake. This involves making the clan ties and the food bundle. I encourage women from the community to come and be part of this preparation. Once the offering is ready we will travel by boat and make the offering to the spirits of the water. Samantha has arranged for a boat to take us out on the lake at 4:00 PM.
- Full Moon ceremony – evening of July 11th at 9:00 PM. We will meet in the tipi that is located in the yard of Albert & Elizabeth Tait. This ceremony may take a while to complete depending on the number of participants so plan for your comfort.
- July 12 – Tobacco and water ceremony at 8:00 AM at a location arranged by our hosts in Norway House. I will post the location once it is confirmed.
The walkers will begin the spiritual journey to help Lake Winnipeg heal at the conclusion of the tobacco and water ceremony. Community members are encouraged to attend and participate in the walk. Meegwetch to the community of Norway House First Nation for your support. I look forward to meeting and walking with you. Animkiiquay (Katherine Sinclair)
