Red Man Laughing - Moose Hide Camp Featuring Melaw Nakehk'o

In this episode of Red Man Laughing we take you to Chief Drygeese Territory to the heart of the Dechinta Bush University moosehide camp and we visit with instructor Melaw Nakehk'o, Ethel Lamothe and student Jonathan Konistea.

Melaw Nakehk'o (Liidlii Kue Deh Cho Denendeh) is a traditional moosehide tanner based out of Yellowknife, NWT and is on a mission to not only spread the word about the importance of traditional moosehide tanning to the people of Denendeh in relation to their connection to land, but she's also on a mission to teach the next generation of moosehide tanners the importance of holding onto the old ways of doing these vital land based activities.
