ATHELSTANE - Children from the Northwoods learned how to hunt deer and sing along to Native American drums.
They spoke in traditional languages and learned about different dialects.
The third annual Binaakwe Falling Leaves Cultural Fall Camp took place this weekend.
Kids at the camp had a great time doing traditional Sokaogon Chippewa activities.
"We went hunting, we played games, we slept in tents and then we also did - we come in here for people to, like, visit us to talk," said Asheeni McGeshick.
They went into the woods to hunt and trap deer.
"We caught a little tiny one. It was a buck, but it was still growing its horns," said Gage Poupart.
Robert VanZile works as a language and cultural teacher in the Sokaogon Chippewa community.
He says the goal of the program is to share their traditions with the tribal youth.
"Our initial intent is to work with the youth in the community," said VanZile. "We're using our language, our culture, our identity, as well as our sovereignty to be able to relate to our children."
Traditional drum teacher John Johnson brought some of his students with him to teach camp participants how to play.
He says it's important to pass things on for future generations.
"The kids are going to move forward in life and they're going to be the caretakers of our tribes," said Johnson. "They're going to be the next leaders of our generations to come and it's really important they know their culture."
