Canadian Journalist Brandy Yanchyk heads to southeastern Ontario. She meets the rare and endangered Ojibwe Spirit Horses at the Mādahòkì Farm in Nepean, Ontario. This is the only known breed of horse indigenous to Canada. The farm’s Legacy Trail is a self-guided medicine walk and their marketplace supports local Indigenous small businesses and artists. Brandy learns to make a corn husk doll, a Haudenosaunee tradition that dates back thousands of years. Brittle dried cornhusks become soft if soaked in water and produce finished dolls sturdy enough for children's toys.
Near Cornwall, Ontario, at the international Akwesasane Mohawk Nation (‘land where the partridge drums’), you can get guided tours of several museums, learn lacrosse stick making and basket making, and eat in local restaurants. Brandy learns how to make traditional corn bread.
At the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario, Brandy meets Guatamalan-born painter and performance artist Francisco Corbett.
