Culture Camp is a land based studies program that allows youth gathered together from nearby communities to explore their traditions and teachings as First Nations people. There is also a good balance of fun mixed in!
The participants are able to experience the Land Based teachings and can now say they have done it themselves. They have ice fished, skinned deer, made bannock from scratch over a fire, made their own ribbon skirt and sang at the drum. Some of the other workshops may include things like leather making and stretching and preparing hides, languages, traditional games and snowshoeing, sweat lodge teachings, traditional medicines, storytelling / legends, residential school awareness, archery, jingle dress teaching, self-healing workshop, diabetes workshop, tea boiling and clan systems to name a few.
It is an inspiring sight to see the youth be empowered in their cultural knowledge and teachings.
