Winter Animal Tracking & Intro to Trapping Workshop for Two-Spirit, Trans, Non-Binary, Genderqueer/Gender Non-Conforming, Queer, and Woman/Womxn-Identified Indigenous Folks

Where: 1459 Baseline Rd. S., Tiny, ON

When: Sat. Feb 8, 2020, 10:30am to 4:30 pm EST

In partnership with the Indigenous Sustenance Reclamation Network, the Mashkiki Collective is offering sustenance programming to all Indigenous Womxn, Two-Spirit, Trans, Queer, LGBIAP+, Non-Binary, Genderqueer, Bigender, and Agender folx with an emphasis on land-based skills and ancestral foods and medicines. Our events aim to restore our sustenance relationships, increase the number of sustenance Knowledge Holders, and to provide tools to navigate sustenance activism. These offerings will include both in-person and online gatherings to best meet community members' needs and geographic locations.

ABOUT THE EVENT:

In this workshop, Hunter Cascagnette (they/ them) will be taking participants out to do some animal tracking at the "Tiny Marsh Provincial Wildlife Conservation area". We will be walking on the frozen marsh and trails identify various animal tracks and signs we come across. We will also look for animal dens and lodges. On our walk we are likely to come across coyote, fox, muskrat, mink, weasel, raccoon, rabbit, and other animal tracks and signs too! Afterwards, we will have an outdoor fire to warm up, a late-lunch, and a tea time sharing circle where folks will be welcomed to ask more questions and share about familial and ancestral relationships to trapping, fur, animal harvesting food ways, etc. At some point during our time together, Hunter will share teachings on trapping and demonstrate how conibear and leg hold traps function. 

 

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:

Hunter Cascagnette (they/ them) is a gender-non-conforming, two-spirit mixed blood person of Potawatomi, Métis, and European settler ancestries, preserving hunting, trapping, and sugar bushing practices in their family in southern Georgian Bay.
