Bush Crafts

Bush crafts refer to the ancient skills and knowledge that enabled the Ojibwa to survive and even thrive in their natural environment. 

Bush craft skills include firecraft, tracking, hunting, building shelters, making and using tools such as knives, axes, arrows and spears, foraging, carving, rope and twine making, construction of containers from materials at hand and many others.

Many of the skills are still practiced by the folks who live in remote communities.
