Paddling Nation Lakes

Renada Walstrom (in yellow) and Anne Sam (in blue) practice their paddling technique on a windy afternoon on Stuart Lake in preparation for a group trip organized by Nak’azdli to the Nation Lakes chain. The pair were brave enough to get in the water and learn how to do a canoe rescue, using one canoe to drain and right another overturned canoe. The five-day journey is the first of what the group would like to see become annual community-building expeditions to connect with the area’s history and environment.
