Summary:

"A first-hand account of a Swampy Cree boy's experiences hunting and trapping in the upstream region of the Saskatchewan River Delta. Depicting a certain Indigenous lifestyle that existed in Northern Saskatchewan way past the Fur Trade era, Ken Carriere shares his first-hand account of experiences as a young boy helping his father with muskrat trapping, commercial fishing, and guiding hunters in the upstream region of the Saskatchewan River Delta. Opimōtēwina wīna kapagamawāt Wītigōwa / Journeys of The One to Strike the Wetigo contains interviews with elders, stories, personal photographs, and poetry, along with some original Swampy Cree translations. Creating a vivid portrait of what it was like to live off the land in the past, Carriere also reveals how commercial fishing and hunting, hydro-electric dams, and other Western endeavours have impacted the livelihoods of so many Northern communities"-- Provided by publisher.
