Join Eric Hemenway, director of the Department of Repatriation, Archives and Records for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, and Emily Hughes, LTC Membership Coordinator and wilderness guide, for a day-long epic journey. As those who have traveled these waters for thousands of years before us know, the weather decides the challenge level of a day’s paddle. We could be easily paddling across glassy waters or leaning into a powerful headwind. An intimate group of paddlers will experience the river through the eyes of a native story teller and historian. After the morning’s paddle, we will ignite sparks from flint and steel or a bow drill in order to cook traditional soup over fire. Enjoy wild rice harvested in the Midwest simply cooked with corn and potatoes. After our bellies are filled we will get back on the water to paddle northward to our final destination. Learn about the history of this region by living in a moment of it. Previous lake canoeing experience required. Canoe, paddle and PFD included. Participation is limited, please call to register. Cost is $50.
