Now offering winter plant harvesting and nature walks with Indigenous guides
Your hosts, the Cazon family, are direct descendants of the Dene guide who helped Alexander Mackenzie down the Mackenzie River in 1789. You will learn more than you ever thought you knew about parts of the fauna and flora as medicines, in recipes and as part of their spirituality. You may even learn how to say, “Hello”, “Thank you” and “Goodbye” in Dene and why men cannot do that, and women can only do this. And you will have a wonderful time doing it! After playing Dene games, doing crafts and visiting some historical sites, your guides will tell stories and legends and answer all your questions until you fall asleep in your teepee, tent or under the northern lights.
