WALPOLE ISLAND FIRST NATION
We’re on our way to Walpole Island to meet up with Knowledge Keeper and “Ultimate Duck Hunter,” Joel Wright. I think you guessed it, he’s going to take us duck hunting for the first time, but we need to camouflage ourselves by learning how to make duck blinds out of marsh hay. This is going to be fun.
