MICEC Online

Jason Parenteau on Raising Anishinaabe Children

MICEC Online is a series of virtual educational presentations and discussions on themes of traditional parenting, food, medicine, crafting, language, storytelling, reconciliation and more.

The Manitoba Indigenous Cultural Education Centre is a not-for-profit charitable organization, and a member of the First Nations Confederacy of Cultural Education Centres. MICEC supports Indigenous language knowledge, traditional and contemporary cultural skills, and cross-cultural awareness.

On this session of MICEC Online we were joined by Jason Parenteau, a Lanape man born in Vancouver, British Columbia, a member Moravian of the Thames Delaware Nation, and a recognized member of our Indigenous community here in Manitoba. He is the Cultural Coordinator at Dakota Ojibwe Child and Family Services (DOCFS), and a Professor of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu who founded the Roseau River Jiu Jitsu Club. Jason is also a husband, a father, an uncle and a mentor, and in these roles he has committed himself to reclaiming our language and culture. He is a third-degree Midewiwin, a hunter, a fisherman, a harvester, a singer, a dancer, and a language speaker. Working with others across our community, he has helped to host many camps for hunting, harvesting, fasting, language immersion.

Thank you to the NIB Trust Fund for supporting MICEC Online.
