You step into another world with this year-round, family run business at Teepee Village in the small First Nation’s community of Ndilǫ (population 200), near Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Summer cultural trips take place on the shores of Great Slave Lake, the 10th biggest lake in the world. While in winter, you get to experience a teepee perched atop the frozen lake, stomp through snow on wooden snowshoes with leather lashings and drive on an ice road. “What I enjoy most is seeing satisfaction in our guests. We teach them something about our culture and they leave happy. The more we teach them, the happier they are,” says AuroraTours.Net co-owner Rainer Erasmus. “And when they leave happy, we’re happy.” The company’s fall and winter’s star attraction is the spectacular aurora borealis, eerily shifting and shimmering across Northern skies. Small, intimate groups head out on late-night aurora hunting expeditions, stopping at secluded viewing spots away from town lights. “Even when the weather is really cold, we make sure everyone is having fun,” says Erasmus, who has Dene and Danish ancestry. “And we’re always sure to get our guests back to their hotel by 2 a.m. They just love it. No one has ever left disappointed.”

Learn to make your own “four cent” cake – the popular snack created from leftover dough fried in lard – over an open fire. Learn insights among traditional hunting and fishing practices. Get up and try the koujua dance alongside a lady in a “jingle dress” whose rows of small metal cones make a tinkling sound as she moves. Practice your drumming. Listen to music. Play the ancient game of waltes and discover the practice of heating a tipi with glowing-hot rocks from a fire. At a reconstructed trading post, hear the stories of how Europeans once exchanged medicine and tobacco for pelts and hides. “The immersion is delivered with much love and dedication to Mi’kmaq culture,” says Macdonald. “We encourage visitors to take their time and ask lots of questions.” The roughly 3-hour experience finishes with tea and warm Mi’kmaq luskinigan, a warm bannock bread baked in an oven, delicious with jam or molasses.

our experiences we hope to inspire the same love and respect we have for the land in our guests as they learn about the plants and animals in our environment, taste meals which use ingredients from our land and waters and see the beauty that surrounds us. From short day hikes to overnight treks, our experiences are thoughtfully designed to showcase the unique—and sometimes hidden—areas of Gros Morne National Park. During the summer join us for guided hiking and walking tours, Zodiac boat adventures, kayak and paddleboard tours, food tours and culinary adventures. During the long Newfoundland winter, we offer guided snowmobile, snowshoe and backcountry skiing tours and winter camping and off-grid experiences. We also operate the Water’s Edge RV Park and Campground and the Bonne Bay Market shop and bakery. My family roots are part of the Mi’kamq communities of Corner Brook and Curling, I’m still learning and exploring this part of my history and the start of our Indigenous heritage beginning in Bay St.George and Codroy Valley regions and I’m excited to share that with my guests.

trail through a spectacular natural setting, members of the Bridge River Band (Xwisten) demonstrate net fishing, and how to cut salmon for wind-drying in the semi-desert climate of Lillooet, 130 kilometres north of Whistler, BC. “We share with our guests the importance of fish to our people, showing that the traditional practice of preserving salmon for food is still practiced today, as well as telling what has changed. Our fish stocks, for so many reasons, are being threatened,” says Florence Jack, manager of the band-run and owned Xwisten Experience Tours. “We aim to make people realize we’re still here, that we still practise our culture and it’s not just history. We still teach our kids these practices. Our livelihood depends on this food source.” Along with lessons on living culture, history is also integral to Xwisten’s summertime tour as it leads to an extensive archaeological village site with over 90 pit house depressions — the remains of traditional winter homes, one of which was excavated by the University of Montana revealing detail of the region’s rich history. “We employ community members and we encourage our guides to give a little piece of themselves when they meet our guests,” says Jack. “People bond with our guides and have such a memorable experience, they leave wanting to tell others about it.” The tour concludes with barbecued fresh Fraser River salmon for lunch at the Bearfoot Grill, complete with rice, salad, asparagus and bannock. Here, you get to finish up with a delicious traditional dessert of whipped soapberries (sxúsum). Yum.
