2016 NWABSD Hot Springs Trip

Published by Darron Toy on

(rising dramatic music) (piano fading in) (intense beat) – We came out here on
a week-long field trip. We were learning about how to travel, it’s springtime, things
are starting to warm up and even melt in some places. And so, what we do on
trips like this is kids are learning how to travel, how to navigate, how to find your way,
how to travel as a group, even how to pack a sled,
tie it down, how to camp. We were camping out in
tents a couple nights ago. – Fog was kinda trippy, the
ride yesterday was great. Took us about 11 hours
from Derring and Buck then show to cabin, to Serpentine. – And what are they doing right now? – They’re tying the thing to the sled cause the bolt sheer off. – And how are they
gonna fix that later? – Raymond said he had extra bolts. – What do you think of these big rocks? – They’re kinda scary. – When we were driving through
the fog, some rocks would show up out of no where and
yeah it was kinda scary. – I saw a lot of caribou and
I think that’s pretty amazing cause there’s not much
caribou towards Notak area. When you get to see there’s
lots of caribou spreaded out and that’s pretty
amazing to see that many. – When we get our first
caribou, people in Notak say that when we get it we
have to cut out the kidney and take a bite out of it. It’s like a tradition, and people who get their first caribou have to,
they give it to an elder. – This is the most important tool you’re going to have to survive. – You need to get away from the weather. And one way you can do
that is you can either cave into the snow, or
you can use what you have. – I learned to never leave
your own snow machine even if it’s broken down. And to take a tarp, shovel, ax, flare gun, and something lighter than
something to keep you warm. – I learned that you
shouldn’t leave your machine and that you should stay
by it, and do what you can, even if you need to bust up
your plastics on your shovel or just make a cave
with branches and snow, or just even sit on the side of the snow when the wind’s not blowing. – I just couldn’t help
coming to this place and not nerd out about
archeology for a while, and hopefully get you guys
excited about archeology. You know Nanna traces it’s
lineage to 10,000 years ago, so those really really old
sites, 10,000 years ago, 12,000 years ago, those were
the ancestors of the Inu pack. I was working with the students,
teaching them a little bit about archeological methods
as well as about the sites surrounding Serpentine hot
springs, there’s prehistoric and historic sites here, people
have been using this land for the last 12,000 years. Those parts of our heritage are protected, and they can’t be
disturbed by construction. Cause otherwise you know people would want to build everywhere, maybe
there’s some people out there who don’t care about
the cultural resources. – Everything that we’re
doing, they’re learning. Which is important for where we live. These are things that I believe students and people need to know how to do. And so it’s a little bit
of a different education from other places in the world, but it may be even more applicable to some of these guys’ lives. ♪ Look up, live free ♪ ♪ Dream big, and see ♪ ♪ The world is yours ♪ ♪ The world is yours ♪ ♪ Give all you have ♪ ♪ You have to give ♪ ♪ The world is yours ♪ ♪ The world is yours ♪ ♪
