We had a terrific opportunity to put our learning into ACTION today! We visited Fort Normandeau just outside of Red Deer for their Bison Hunt program. Our interpreter was Megan – she was really knowledgeable and helped us to see that the bison provided a “supermarket” of food, materials and tools for Alberta’s First Nations.
With Megan’s guidance, we then participated in a re-enactment of a bison hunt – complete with a bison pound and students acting as bison, hunters, decoys, scouts… the list goes on.
