Unreserved: The healing power of plants, a 9 year-old martial artist and the moose hide campaign
Greetings, from the wilds of my backyard and deep in the swing of my hammock!
While you are wandering through your own summer fun, we here at Unreserved are offering up some encore shows for your audio enjoyment.
Unreserved returns on August 30, when we hit the national radio airwaves. In the mean time — there is a pile of books and a cold drink I simply must get back to.
This week on Unreserved
How a Vancouver man is using a 1-inch square of moose hide to change the fabric of society. Paul LaCerte was inspired by his young daughter to launch a national campaign to end violence against women and children.
When Leah Prosper was born, the first thing her father said was she was going to learn martial arts.
Not just for self-defence; her Cree parents also wanted Leah to have a healthy self-esteem. Nine years later — find out where that skill has taken her.
Plus, a plant that mimics a bone? When Joseph Pitawanakwat was a child, his auntie told him about the medicines found in different types of native plants. But it wasn't until his wife handed him a book about the healing properties of herbs that he truly found his calling. Find out how this traditional plant practitioner is marrying science and tradition.
We'll also hear music from Elisapie, Murray Porter, Amanda Rheaume, and CerAmony.
Tune in to Unreserved on CBC Radio One after the 5 p.m. news in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Nunavut, and after the 4 p.m. news in Yukon and the N.W.T. for an encore broadcast from April 2015.
