Kevin Lewis: kâ-nêyâsihk mîkiwâhpa

Lana Whiskyjack uses her digital storytelling superpowers to help spread the story of beautiful work going on at kâ-nêyâsihk mîkiwâhpa / ᑳ ᓀᔮᓯᕽ ᒦᑭᐚᐦᐸ / kâniyâsihk Culture Camps based at ministikwan / Island Lake, Saskatchewan.

In the video, Dr Kevin Lewis describes the evolution of the camps that began over 15 years ago, giving young people the chance to become oskâpêwisak: the helpers that elders rely on in ceremony. In the years since then, the camp has continued to grow, supporting and promoting language, culture, ceremony and all kinds of land-based learning in a stunningly beautiful setting (Lana’s video images are beautiful: there are even more gorgeous shots to be found on the website – along with Cree/English bilingual descriptions of camps and activities.)
