Traditional Indigenous skills, whether it be plant and land knowledge, trapping, fire making, cord making, or shelter-building, can all be empowering and reconnecting activities that serve as beneficial to individuals, communities, or collectives.
These skills often teach patience, culture, resourcefulness, and resilience.
TRS staff uses metaphorical transference to prompt participants about how their experience in the field is applicable to their lives.
What to Expect
Some traditional skills can be done individually, in pairs, in small groups, or as one collective. These skills can often be time consuming, can involve trial and error, and might be frustrating at times.
TRS staff will share demonstrations, instructions, advice, and guidance.
