The objective of the project is to provide Na-Cho Nyäk Dun (NND) citizens the opportunity to travel by horseback and by foot in traditionally used areas in the Peel Watershed region to learn about the past historical presence of their elders by traveling to old hunting camps, key wildlife areas, and through stories by the campfire shared by our elders at the end of each day. Our elder guide on the trip, whose past experiences in the area, will provide our young citizens the opportunity to experience the cultural significance of these areas by traveling the land and bringing the knowledge back to their community. Participants will be presenting at a community meeting on what they learned, discovered, and come to appreciate about being out on the land. The trip will also include a technical aspect whereby the participants will learn how to take water samples from numerous drainages during their travels. These skills will be taught several days prior to the trip and will be incorporated into the daily activities of the trip. Through this work, they will learn the importance of taking baseline water samples which may introduce each participant into a future career as an Environmental Sampler.
