Cultural Demonstrations

A community welcome

A typical guided community tour might include stops to meet with local artists, a demonstration of traditional practices like fish preparation or the medicinal use of plants, and perhaps a chance to sample tea, bannock and drymeat. Visitors are welcome, too, at community feasts, an occasion for members of a community to meet, share some good-natured fun and enjoy traditional drumming, dancing and other entertainment.
