I've been on a journey to recover my family's culture and what that means to us since I got pregnant. Most families have heirlooms from their culture and Metis people used to have heirloom beaded pieces and patterns that were passed down, but I've found that I need to piece things together.
I've found some comfort in the act of medicine making. In early March I gathered my snowshoes and wrapped up my baby to collect the sticky cottonwood buds from the trees. The medicine can be used for skin wounds for babies but the act of collecting is medicine in itself and is one of the pieces of my culture which I'm beginning to pick back up.
This still-life of my mom's mukluks, my grampa's snowshoes and my baby's moccasins and mossbag which come from my friend and my midwife.
