2020 Virtual Gathering Elders Teachings

In 2020 we faced unprecedented times in the wake of a pandemic. As a result, the Looking After Each Other Annual Gathering could not proceed on the land. Thankfully, the Manitoba FASD Coalition, the Looking After Each Other project and Lake Manitoba First Nation partnered to create the 2020 Looking After Each Other VIRTUAL Gathering consisting of a series of virtual Indigenous teachings. Three sessions were offered endeavoring to share knowledge within the FASD world and with Indigenous Elders and First Nations Communities across the province.

Looking After Each Other Virtual Gathering: Session Two – The Rites of Passage
with Elder Katherine Whitecloud and Dr. Dave Courchene
