M’CHIGEENG—Kenjgewin Teg’s ninth annual Fall Harvest celebrations take place this Thursday, September 20 at the M’Chigeeng powwow grounds with a day filled with activities centering on the theme of ‘Living and Breathing Sustainable Ways of Being.’
The day’s events get underway at 9 am and include many things to see, do and eat. Visitors to the Fall Harvest (and all are welcome) can look forward to taste testing stations featuring a UCCM Anishnaabe Police fish fry, scone, tea, marmalades and jellies or maybe try your hand at canning pickles, harvesting cattails or baking up a zucchini cake.
There will also be plenty of time to learn from community members in the ways of smoking fish, trapping and snares, drum song teachers, harvesting chickens, quill work, preparing hominy corn, moose/deer harvesting and so much more.
Also this year, Indigenous games and crafts will also be part of the festival including medicine pouch making, math games as well as Anishnaabemowin immersion games.
These are just a few of the many offerings on at this year’s Fall Harvest, this Thursday, September 20 from 9 am to 3 pm at the M’Chigeeng powwow grounds.
There will also be a soup and scone lunch (first come, first served) so don’t forget your feast bundles! Water bottles are also encouraged. A water fill-up station is on-site.
“Harvest taste testing takes place all day long, so bring your appetites!” the folks at Kenjgewin Teg urge.
