Land Based Education

Paddling the Tsiigehnjik - This documentary follows the students, staff, and community members from Tsiigehtchic in the Northwest Territories as they complete the 2019 Chief Paul Niditchie School canoe trip. This annual trip takes Grade 6-9 students up the Tsiigehnjik (Arctic Red River) where they learn resilience, reclaim historical knowledge, practice the Gwich'ya Gwich'in language, and engage in land-based learning as they paddle approximately 100 kilometres back to the community.
