Tai-Chi in the Park with Nuit Blanche
September 29, 2018
On Saturday, August 11th, the youth at Locals Only learned the process of making pemmican at the art carts from Donna Lerat. Pemmican is a portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that can last for long periods of time. It’s made up of a dried mixture of meat, berries, and a rendered fat.
The youth were able to try their hand at grinding up chokecherries with a large stone, and then creating a paste from the chokecherries and lard. Passersby got the chance to get some quick tips and share in the fun. Our sincerest thanks to Donna for teaching us!
