Here are the different ways in which we currently support the important work of our partners in Kisipakamak (Brochet)
Our harvesting partners in Kisipakamak focus on fishing activities and ensuring that all community youth has an opportunity to learn how to fish. Fishing activities are also supported by a caribou hunt in the winter, sometimes in collaboration with Dahlu T’ua located further north. In keeping with important Cree traditions, our harvesting partners ensure that more vulnerable members of the community get to eat traditional food harvested from the land, especially community elders.
We regularly ship seeds to the Brochet Health Centre and to key community partners to further disperse to all interested community members. In addition to a community greenhouse, the Brochet Health Centre also hosts a large seasonal garden where community members can come plant their own crops. We also support the school as they build raised garden beds.
