About the event

Metis Mothers and Daughters April 2023

Aski Holistic Adventures offers an herbal immersion experience, a week of sharing Indigenous knowledge, skills, and values. 

  • 3 days in trapline cabins @ Aski Holistic Adventures cabins, all meals included
  • Herbal medicine and picking classes
  • Holistic healthy living practices like meditation, tea making, active lifestyle, ice fishing, and beading. (weather will factor into activities)
  • Talking Circle and Tea Ceremony
  • Workshop on the Four Elements of Mental Health
  • Shared accommodations, outhouses, and shared kitchen home-cooked meals, we will all help out with food prep/cleanup

We are a family-run adventure lodge located 55km from Cumberland House, SK, on the Saskatchewan River Delta. We are accessible only by a wilderness trail in the winter, or by boat in the summer. We offer all sorts of adventures, with shared cabin accommodations, home-cooked dinners, and a sauna. We are off-grid, therefore we have wood stoves, haul water from the river, use outhouses, and hunt/fish/garden for our food. This is our family home steeped in Cree culture and we invite you to be part of our family too!


Meet in Cumberland House, catch the shuttle in the morning to the trail head down the highway. 

There will be a skidoo ride and hiking trip into the cabins, dressed in warm layers ready for moving around. Bedding provided. Please bring your own drinking water, snacks, and towel.  There is no power, cell service, or wifi during the retreat, notify your families you are off-grid for a couple of days.

  • Pick up on Monday, April 1 in Cumberland
  • Please contact Betsy Bird at 306-888-3108 to sign up
  • 10 spots available (or about 5 pairs of mother-daughters)
  • Questions about the retreat? email
