Join us for a Lunch & Learn and pemmican-making workshop at noon on October 3, 2017, in the Wahkohtowin Lodge.

Have you ever wondered what Indigenous peoples of the Prairies ate? Pemmican is a high caloric food that could be transported easily. Many hunters and those out on the land took pemmican with them as their main food source. Please join Jennifer Ward, Educational Developer, CTL, as we make pemmican and learn about its history including why there was a ban on the export of pemmican in the early 1800s. Each participant will make their own pemmican.

Workshop is $5, with a $5 lunch available upon request. Workshop & Lunch FREE for students who pre-register courtesy of the alumni office. To register, contact Deb Olafson at augalum@ualberta.ca or (780) 679-1626.

 


Jennifer Ward (MA, Athabasca University) is of Umpqua and Algonquin descent. She has ten years experience as an English Instructor at NAIT, as well as two years experience as a Consultant in the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Education unit with Edmonton Public Schools (EPSB). Working with Elders, students and community are some of her most cherished experiences, and Jennifer welcomes the opportunity to help educators bring Indigenous worldviews into their practice and their classrooms.
