    You will learn about the devastating impact of the residential school system and other policies of colonialism and assimilation on our people and our culture. The Indigenous community (Fort Providence) you will overnight is home to the first residential school in this area, opened in 1860, over a 160 years ago. We will visit the Memorial dedicated to the survivors and to those that never made it back home. This visit will be a very tough moment emotionally.

    Travel on the mighty Mackenzie River or as we call it in our Dene language, the “dehcho” and visit a traditional culture camp and experience life on the land, enjoy traditional foods and traditional activities like the powerful traditional Dene Hand Games! Back to town after a traditional dinner, we may get lucky and experience our powerful Dene Drum Dance.
