Everything comes to a head as heavy snow signals the nearing of the end of the journey. Their final days are filled with a mixture of melancholy, excitement, bow making, and reflection.
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.
