Lila Fraser Erasmus squats down and carefully plucks three petals off a wild rose flower.
She explains that by leaving two of the five petals she can harvest what she needs and bees can pollinate.
Fraser Erasmus is of the Northern Tutchone people and originally is from Mayo, Yukon, but now resides in Denendeh.
She’s the owner of Naturally Dene and a firm believer that her land-based knowledge is useless unless shared with others.
Naturally Dene is a business run by Fraser Erasmus and offers cultural teachings, medicine walks and workshops along with all-natural products from the north.
