Tribal Treks: “Welcome to Our Home”

Tribal Treks takes ordinary people on extraordinary adventures with the First Nations people of Canada.

In This Episode, Ronnie and Graham Gerrard, hairdressers from the city, go to Bamfield, British Columbia, to visit the traditional lands of the Huu-ay-aht First Nation.

Derek Peters welcomes them and gives a tour. Clifford Charles arranges their campsite at the Pachena Bay Campground where the couple finds a spiritual connection. Larry Johnson, the Economic Development Manager for the Huu-ay-aht First Nation, takes them fishing and to a traditional salmon feast. Robert Dennis Junior teaches drumming, Colleen Peters teaches dancing, and Gabe Williams lets them try some carving and then takes them on a canoe paddle in a traditional dugout canoe.
