Transcript of The First Nations of Mackenzie and Yukon River Basin

The utensils we used for hunting are: bow and arrow, Beothuk arrows, traps, bomarang, and a few more.

Traps were used for small animals like hare and deers. Bomarangs were used for animals that we big. Beothuk arrows was the strongest utensil for hunting.
Moose ware the main source of the game in the region. Calling the moose using a bark horn, or rubbing an antler adainst a tree, theratened the male moose, causing it to challenge this threat. When the moose appeared, the one of us would use our bow and arrow to kill it. How we move The First Nations of the Mackenzie and Yukon River Basin How we live: Our homes! We live in simple lodges. Since we are always moving, we constantly make houses that are simple to assemble and dismantle. This is because our game is always on the run. What we ate:

Sekani Our Clothing How we hunted ~Our culture~: "Our way of living" We are the first nations of the
Mackenzie and Yukon River Basin!
Like many first nations groups
and our neighbors we have been
almost forgotten , almost but
not fully!Today we would like to
show and tell you a little about
"Our Way of Living" !!! We have high pride for our unique cultures. We believe in the spirits of our ancestors will help us in our times of need. Shamans were greatly honored, as they could predict the game of the season. This is the procedure they do: We dress accordindly to different seasons. Men and women both have different type of clothing. Our clothing was very different from the other tribes of the first nations... In the Kutchin region, the shaman was usually an elder woman. We eat fish, moose, sheep, hare,
beaver, caribou, and deer.Because
most of these animals were always
on the move, so were we!! This way
of living is called semi-nomadic. What did we do with the leftover parts of the animals? We treated the kill with respect, believing that the animal possessed a soul. Rituals were followed to thnak the animal for giving its life.(We did not like to waste.) some animals were considered special ceremonial animals. Caribou Moose Deer Beothuk arrows The Principle Tribes All of us speak the
Athapaskan language!! The men wore longshirts, breechcloths, long leggings, and beltand moccasins.

The women (us) wore long dresses, short leggings up to our knees and moccasins same as the men wore. Fish
The clothes of both men and women were
made out of buck, deer, antelope and moose skin... The woman would burn the shoulder blade of a moose, and the ashes will tell the tribe the way of the hunt. Then a blanket would be thrown on the woman and the ashes. If the smell of meat met her, the hunt would be a success. http://www.aztradingpost.com/images/BOW21.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_QlTAdivgTKY/S9WNt_m-NbI/AAAAAAAABh4/o5MFFt1TvLM/s1600/beothuk%20arrows%20029.jpg http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/03_03/mooseDM2003_468x440.jpg Meat in the summer was dried in the sun and pounded to powder to make the food pemmican. http://www.deer-pictures.com/red_deer_winter.jpg http://www.ece.gov.nt.ca/divisions/kindergarten_g12/curriculum/dene%20kede%20curriculum%20document/animals/captureclip258.png http://museum.gov.ns.ca/imagesns/binaries/DHP0210942-DEV01514.jpg http://www.photoscanada.com/gallery/albums/glenbow_museum_calgary/glenbow_museum_native_clothing_019.thumb.jpg Tunics http://education.davidspencer.ca/w/images/0/0a/Mukluks-deerhide-450.jpg
