Tales from the Trapline Experience

Tales from the Trapline is a 4-hour immersive Indigenous experience that explores Métis traditional winter activities and skills on an learned from the land. Strap on a set of snowshoes, set a snare, build a survival shelter, and learn a traditional art as you create your own unique and beautiful keepsake.

Snowshoe

When the snow falls, Métis people still travel and play outdoors. Snow shoes allow a wearer to walk on the top of the snow, and this mode of transportation is not only effective but also a lot of fun! Come join us as we bring those vital ways of survival from the past to enjoy the snow in the present. Strap on the snowshoes and follow in the tracks of those that came before us.
