Dinner with the Stewart Family

We were invited through our Clinical Educator, Alex, to have dinner with the Stewarts who are one of the Cree families here in Chisasibi. Goose was on the menu for the night so we were especially excited.

We first went to spend some time with them inside their michuap as they finished roasting the geese over the fire. The inside of the michuap smelled so good, a nice mixture of evergreen boughs and goose fat roasting on the fire!

Alex got to get her hands dirty and worked alongside one of the Stewarts as she learned how to cut open up a goose.

Though it looked like she would maybe chop off a finger at first, she succeeded in carving up the geese for us to eat.

The Stewarts then treated us to a delicious meal of geese (niskich). We spent the evening laughing and talking with the Stewarts. What a great way to spend a Saturday evening!
