Merchants of the Wild, Season 2 is a vivid 13 part, 30 min documentary series mixing culture, survival, reconnection to the land, and adventure. It takes viewers back in time with six Indigenous Adventurers who embark on the journey of a lifetime, as they begin with nothing and attempt to survive 25 days on the land, paddling birchbark canoes through the vast oceanic territory know to the L’nu’k (Mi’kmaq) people as Unama'ki.
From day one they will need to rely on cultural teachings and the land to reach the end of their journey. During the course of their adventure, they will meet Syilx Elders and Knowledge Holders at various camps along the winding river and secluded lakes, learning culture, language, and traditional Okanagan teachings to help them complete their journey.
Throughout the experience, each Adventurer will be impacted in different ways, with some finding the connection their spirit has been in search of, while others could succumb to the constant demands of mother nature, the physical struggle and emotional challenges that can come with living off the land. For those who push forward, they will be blessed with newfound strength amongst the teachings and their new friends who will become their family for the journey and beyond.
