Meeting Herbalists Nancy & Chad in Winnipeg - The Hollow Reed

Well we met this Lady over at Michaels craft shop. Earl Morrisseau of Sagkeeng has started to make Walking and Talking Sticks. He goes out and finds the Diamond Willow and harvests them for making his sticks. Earl was shopping for some stones at Michaels to add to his sticks and happened to notice another artist browsing the paint aisle. So they started a conversation and introductions were made. Nancy was a very friendly person and it was quickly decided that Earl would bring her a Walking Stick once he finished one. He said maybe in two weeks or so. 

So it was today that Earl stopped in at the Hollow Reed Herbal shop on Corydon Avenue in Winnipeg Manitoba. 

Guess who was surprised? Nancy. In life we may say a lot of things we mean but fail to follow up on. This is one of those days where Earl followed up on his promise to a complete stranger he had only met for a brief moment. 

After all who cares right? You meet someone new and may never meet them again. So we can almost say anything. 

The shop and the people of the Hollow Reed are very sincere and kind people. We sat had some tea and visited for a while. Nancy's husband Chad came and visited for a while he even gave us some Namepin (wild ginger) that is used as Heart Medicine. The shop was busy with people coming and going.  It was a pleasant and friendly visit with some good people. Nancy and Chad have some medicines which are available for Traditional Indian use. Which is cool. Not everyone has the opportunity to venture out in the bush or knows how to get some medicine.

We will go back there and check it out sometime in the future.  

If you go there make sure to tell them we sent you.
