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, as we paddle down the Bear River. An intimate group of 12 paddlers will experience the river through the eyes of a native story teller and historian. Experience the sound of paddles dipping into the river as they have for thousands of years. At the end of our journey we will attempt to ignite sparks from flint and steel or bust a coal with a bow drill and cook a native snack over the crackling fire. No previous canoeing experience necessary. Event is rain or shine. Participation is limited, please call to register. $40
