The sun is shining, but the mood is still bleak in the camp. Daybi struggles to make amends as the group tackles a grueling paddle on the open ocean. Exhausted, they have once again left little time to set up camp before nightfall.
The documentary series ‘Merchants of the Wild, Season 2’ portrays traditional Mi’kmak (L’nu’k) culture and teachings, survival, and reconnection to the land. Six Indigenous adventurers embark on a 25-day journey, attempting to survive off the land while paddling birchbark canoes through the vast territory know as Unama'ki (Cape Breton).
