Wesaquate also wanted to plant the berries because of the historical significance.
SASKATOON — Artist and spoken word poet Kevin Wesaquate along with 15 volunteers planted more than 440 Saskatoon berry bushes in Saskatoon’s Victoria Park as part of the Misaskwatomina Project. Misaskwatomina means Saskatoon berries in the Cree language.
The idea came to Wesaquate when he was thinking about how to help Indigenous youth in the city and was reminded of his childhood, growing up on Piapot First Nation with Nokom and Mosom (grandma and grandpa in Cree) and picking berries during the summer months.
