in collaboration with The Regina Foodbank. Our team gathers on a weekly basis to make and provide our community with a hot meal - our team makes 300 plus meals and hands out in two locations of Regina. Pepsi Park and Victoria Park. We have a goal of making this program fully sustainable by harvesting our meat and growing our own vegetables.
Buffalo Harvest Ceremony
Buffalo Harvest for our program provides the community an opportunity to eat a food source that our ancestors depended on for generations. As Indigenous people our connect to the buffalo has been a vital piece of who we are. Together, We are reclaiming this practice for our people to help work against food insecurity.
These harvests also provide the opportunity for our Indigenous youth to participate and experience their cultural practices and lineage.
