Episode Ten / Takastepanichikewin Mitatat
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.

Meet the Knowledge Keeper

Knowledge Keeper Name: Joel Wright

Who is your favorite Aboriginal musician/celebrity?  Celebrity would be Gordon Tootoosis; My favorite musician, A Tribe Called Red.

Words to live by/favorite traditional teaching: “RESPECT” – Treating others the way you want to be treated. Showing kindness and consideration. Liking yourself enough to be yourself. Accepting others for who they are.
