Schedule a talking session with an Elder or Knowledge Keeper. All scheduled appointment time frames are up to 60 minutes. We have both male and female Knowledge Keepers.

Come in for a sage smudge and say a prayer with an Elder. We also have Coast Salish cedar branch brushing and Ojibway Eagle fan brushing.

Our group is culturally diverse and open to all cultures. We also enjoy and are open to all traditional drumming and singing.
