Treaty 2 Territory – On February 22,2021, the youth of Tootinaowaziibeeng took part in land-based education activities as part of cultural days at the Tootinaowaziibeeng local school. Language knowledge keeper Lillian Lynxleg and knowledge keeper Gary Ironstand presented to the students, teachings on what their ancestors did generations before and is still being practiced by a few members of Tootinaowaziibeeng.
The youth watched as Billy Jaye Lynxleg a young local trapper who presently traps in the Duck Mountains, he showed the children how to dress a racoon and prepare the fur for sale. The children also participated in traditional song and dance led by Gary Ironstand. The children were explained how important it was to be on the land and to respect Mother Nature. It was a great day of learning and practicing our traditional ways as Anishaanabe people. There are upcoming land base activities in the spring and summer for the youth of Tootinaowaziibeeng.
