The group realized the toll of a nomadic lifestyle. They embark on a long canoe trip. The relentless lifestyle of those who travelled these historical trade routs before them sinks in with each paddle. They apply the skills they have learned form Elder Charlie to set up camp and learn how to make a traditional fish net from jute twine.
In the ‘Merchants of the Wild’ series, six Oji-Cree people reconnect to the land, reliving life on a fur trade expedition across northern Cree and Ojibway territories with no modern technology. As they travel in birch bark canoes, elders and knowledge keepers teach them how to make tools and shelter, find food, and use traditional skills, teachings essential to their survival on their 25-day voyage. They gain cultural knowledge and discover ways in which they can better live harmoniously within their environment.
