Elder Michael Thrasher will share his Ojibway teachings that he has attained over a lengthy life time, focusing on the Medicine Wheel. Lunch will be included.


Elder Michael Thrasher (KA-WHYWA-WEET), Turtle Clan, is a nationally recognized teacher of First Nations philosophy, tradition, and knowledge. He spent much of his youth in northern Saskatchewan working alongside his father, honing his business and wilderness skills while operating a remote hunting and fishing lodge north of Lake Athabasca. After leaving the north to further his education, work and travel, Elder Thrasher returned to Canada and came into contact with a number of influential elders from Alberta’s First Nation communities. From these initial meetings began a process of apprenticeship, learning, and training that provided Elder Thrasher with the foundations of traditional Indigenous knowledge and ceremony with roots dating back to the early civilizations of Canada’s Indigenous peoples.
