Trip to Tataskweyak Cree Nation Split Lake, MB
In true Canadian fashion, we had to stop at Tim Hortons for some pre road trip energy!
For our pit stop, the ToyBox team made a visit to the Grand Rapids Headstart. We learned about their programming and created new connections along the way!
Research assistants Mikaila Collins (left) and Meagan Nenka (right), spent the night in a newly constructed cabin built for community wellness. Check out the link below to read all about our Split Lake reflections!
We toured this centre and learned about the work that community guardians have undertaken to uphold traditional Cree laws that maintain and protect the lands and water.
