About the event

The Living Treasures of North America Heritage Awards honor those who have spent a lifetime working to preserve the language, crafts, arts, teachings, or tradition of North American people, or who have worked to protect the land through restoration and preservation. Special consideration is given to those candidates who reach out beyond their communiteis and who teach through leadership or example. All proceeds go directly to the recipients or to a not-for-profit of the honoree's choice.

The Prairyerth 2019 Living Treasures of North America Heritage Award recipients were selected for their dedication and service to their Elders and keeping the traditions and teaching of the Anishinaabeg People alive for the next Seven Generations.
