Mr. Joe Googoo on survival skills (basic fire)

It is improtant that we teach the students basic skills in the forest.  Eskasoni is an area surronded by forest.  Everyones back yard connects to the forest in some way.  We teach students basic skills of every getting lost in the woods.  We teach to remain clam, stay in one spot, and making a survival fire.  we also stress that our ancestors had no lighters or a convient means to make a fire so we domonstrate making a fire with a flint.
