Repost from @greenpeace_canada using @RepostRegramApp - Harvesting wildflowers keeps me connected to the land and my culture. Dried rose petals and fireweed add a lovely touch to one of the oldest soap recipes around. I am using harvesting and soap making to help me learn Northern Tutchone, my grandmother’s language. Detlí’ means soap and huk'an gųą means fireweed. .
From the forest to the soap pot! Juniper berries are found along ridges and banks. They actually take three years to ripen so I have a few patches that I keep an eye on. Also known as tseki jäk in my grandmothers language. .
For me, making soap with natural ingredients is about taking care of our bodies and the earth. As stewards of the land and water, every choice we make has an impact. My lifestyle, my business and my culture all depend on the boreal forest. .
Ts’ok means spruce tree in Northern Tutchone and is one of the first things I get to harvest in the spring. As we settle in for winter up here, I am already looking forward to seeing these little buds!
.
Respect for the land, for our bodies and for future generations. Ni̧tra means respect in Northern Tutchone.
