On this tour you will learn about our Indigenous culture! We will take out to winter camp set in the wilderness outside of Yellowknife, to get there we will need to drive across the frozen lakes! Once here we will gather inside our warm and cozy traditional trapper’s tent, large enough for 10 guests and 2 guides comfortably.
For the next 2 hours our Indigenous guides will talk about our culture, about how life was like in the old days and how we are trying to preserve our traditional ways in a new, modern world. We will snowshoe to our trapline and show you how we set traps and snares to catch the animals we use for food, clothing and medicine.
After snowshoeing back to the tent, we will cook delicious traditional foods such as fresh pan fried fish, North Star’s famous traditional frybread and dryfish. While enjoying these delicious foods, our guides will tell stories about the old days and you can try on some of our traditional clothing for some cool photos!
To end off the tour, we will go into our traditional tipi where we will honour one of our more important spiritual customs, “Feeding the Fire”. Our guides were raised by their grandparents and were taught the traditional way of living and are happy to share their life experiences with you. A great introduction tour into our way of life and our Indigenous culture! Minimum 4 persons, maximum 10 persons. Price: $119.00+GST/person
