The Dene Nahjo Hide Tanning camp is back for another year.
The opening ceremonies of Dene Nahjo’s second annual Urban Hide Tanning Camp took place on Tuesday afternoon at Somba K’e Park.
“Last year we scheduled the tanning camp because of our schedules but that did not work out,” says Project Director Tanya Larson. “We should schedule it because of the times you’re supposed to tan the hides which is usually the spring and the fall because it’s easier on your body. It’s a better temperature to work on hides so that they don’t turn right away.”
This years camp will also offer School tours, an arts and crafts market, and traditional games from the Aboriginal Sports Circle.
The Moose Hide Tanning camp is located at the Somba k’e Park and open to the public Mondays to Saturdays from 10am to 6pm.
