Summer in the Bushland


Clip Synopsis:

The Heritage Community Foundation, with the kind permission of Terry Garvin, is pleased to present this feature excerpt from the Bush Land People video.

The change of seasons from winter to summer in the boreal forest brings opportunities for traditional hunters, trappers, and gatherers to make necessary repairs to shelters and equipment, and to finish processing hides and furs.

Clip Transcription:

 Bushland people take advantage of long hours of sunlight to upgrade furnishings and equipment, weatherproof log buildings, and repair gear such as fish nets and dog harnesses. Women tan moose, caribou, and deerhide stored from the previous fall and winter.
