Exploring cultural ties to the land
REDISCOVERY IS… To discover the strength of cultural traditions
REDISCOVERY IS… To discover the wisdom of the Elders
REDISCOVERY IS… To discover a philosophy of respect and love …for Nature; for Each Other; and for Ourselves !
In 1978, Rediscovery staff, with the advice and guidance of Haida Elders, opened camp participants’ eyes to a renewed contact with the land and heritage around them. Wilderness activities, blended with native culture, served to develop and strengthen feelings of confidence and self-worth for native and non-native participants alike. Since they were integrated in a tolerant and respectful community, participants were free to learn from each other, the environment, Elders, guides and from themselves.
