The Council of Canadians Winnipeg chapter is at the Anishinaabe Nibi (water) Gathering at Whiteshell Provincial Park this May 24-27.
Chapter activists Ken Harasym and Jobb Arnold are the gathering.
The outreach for this notes, "Over the last 3-4 years, Professor Aimée Craft has been working with Elders and learning from them on Anishinaabe law, with a specific focus on water law, Anishinaabe nibi inaakonigewin. There have been 3 big gatherings thus far (Roseau River in June 2013, Whiteshell Provincial Park (Bannock Point) in September 2014 and again in Whiteshell Provincial Park in June 2015). There have also been various planning meetings and mini-gatherings with the Elders throughout these years. The purpose of these gatherings was to engage communities and learn from the elders about Anishinaabe law in our own traditional learning environment – the lodge."
