Woodland Priestess


The Woodland Priestess acting as head mistress of Fireweed Learning community is a Metis spirit medicine guide gifted with owl medicine. I help heal the mind-body-soul through lomi lomi massage & homestead events reconnecting all to the Earth.

Through an honest commitment to holistic farming practices Fireweed Learning Community is dedicated to developing awareness into whole body healing, land stewardship, language and seed preservation, and humane and nutritious food production. Our goal is to be of service as a small scale sustainable model for living a life built on Indigenous values to raise nutritious food in a child centered environment preserving seeds and language for 7 generations to come.


  1. To create and maintain a holistic farming system where all things in nature work together in harmony to produce sustainable and nutritious food
  2. To offer whole body healing through children’s stories, mentorship, massage, yoga, and plant medicine
  3. To teach about food systems, permaculture, herbal medicine, seed saving, language revival & preservation and facilitate conversations that support the co-creation of sustainable communities elsewhere
  4. To offer opportunities to stay on farm in sustainable buildings as a submersible experience into experiential learning and facilitate similar work being replicated in other communities.
