Four Medicines Teachings & Cedar Tea
In this workshop, Elijah will explain the cultural and spiritual aspects of each of the four sacred medicines: sage, sweet grass, cedar, tobacco. Participants will then be able to make their own tobacco tie “Prayers” to take home. Cedar Tea will also be available at the end of the workshop to sample.
Elijah Hill, of the Mohawk Nation, is fluent in English, French, and is currently learning his Mohawk language and is currently pursuing a career in teaching. He has had the privilege to have been able to participate in many sweats, fasts, and other First Nations ceremonies throughout his life. He is both excited and honoured to be returning to this year’s workshop.
