Back to the Land
We have started an iniative that takes students back out on the land. It has been set up with Virginia Morgan and her Gitksan Cultural class. It began by having a smoke house built on school grounds. The following year she started a vegetable garden next to the smoke house. Now she and two other colleagues have begun a journey back out on to the land, hunting with students. Students and adults do a three day camp, where students work cooperatively setting up camp and help in all aspects of the camp. They take walks along trails and in the forest hunting for moose, deer, or bear. They are a part of the whole hunt. The photo is taken at a lake where they camp.
