Gary and I have taken many different survival training courses in the past, and along with our Metis Culture wish to pursue teaching courses. We will offer courses for adults and youth. Topics covered in our courses will be: lost proofing, shelter building, fire starting, water necessities, wildlife awareness, compass and directional travel, snowshoe building, traps, weapons, baskets and rope. We will also offer Hunting Skills Training.

We will conduct these courses on our property, in the back country,  at schools or private functions.
