Last month on Treaty 1 territory, where the forest meets the river and wild rice grows, Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) and Sandy Saulteaux Spiritual Centre (SSSC) exchanged bundles to honour and formalize their relationship.
The bundle ceremony is an Indigenous practice of sharing a collection of items and their stories, which are sacred to the giver, and entrusting them to the receiver.
