The fifth annual Hide Tanning Camp is back once again in Lutselk’e.
Camp organizer Stephanie Poole says the Hide Tanning Camp will run on the same land that ancestors previously used during the Spring.
There is moose hide in different stages of tanning. There is caribou hide in different stages of tanning. There is usually beaver. Last year I tanned a trout skin with another trout tanner.
She says that during the tanning workshops participants will work with a variety of hides and furs.
How to camp is really important and all of the skills you need to make a good camp and keep a good camp. All the different ways to prepare and cook and eat our delicious foods. Language.. different protocols and stories.
Poole adds that the camp is a great opportunity for participants to learn about traditional Dene culture.
The camp runs from Saturday, June 2nd to the Saturday, 9th.
