Guest: Tommy Bird ByLine: Cree Hunter, Trapper Professional Dog Musher Theme: The Great Trail is something all Canadians can enjoy! It extends through 13 Provinces and Territories, 27,000km of trail – many routes that were established by Indigenous peoples for trade and seasonal travel. Educating ourselves about traditional Indigenous culture and lifestyle is a huge part of walking out reconciliation. Tommy Bird is a Cree hunter, trapper and professional dog musher – he is out there on the land, which is what gives him a deep sense of purpose and connectedness to the Creator. He walks the same trails as the 3 generations prior to him – his dad, grandfather, great-grandfather! Tommy is the 4th to hunt, trap and live off the land.
