Successful moose hunt with youth in Fort Providence

By: Avery Zingel

At Deh Gáh Elementary School in Fort Providence, students have the chance to participate in on the land programs.

This fall, grade four and five students caught a moose, bringing the meat back for elders and their parents.

The children learned to make fires, gather Labrador tea, skin and prepare moose meat, and heard stories from elders.

In January, more youth will set out for the winter on-the-land program. They will bring some of the meat gathered in the fall hunt for sustenance.
