The Faithkeepers will be having a to***co burn for strawberry instead of having ceremony due to the active covid cases in the community on Friday, June [email protected]. A basket will be placed inside the Longhouse on one of the stoves to collect your to***co. Please drop it off before this Friday morning at 7am or bring your to***co to a Faithkeeper for collection.

There will also be 2 pails of strawberry drink available after the to***co burning until 3-330pm that day. If you’d like to contribute strawberries to the drink you can also drop them off at the Longhouse before Friday or bring to a Faithkeeper and it will be added to the drink. Bring your own container if you’d like to go get some of the strawberry drink to take home after the to***co burn.

Yaw^ko!
