Fishing Lake First Nation – Ice Fishing For Youth

Posted on:

As part of Fishing Lake First Nation’s community recreation and their school’s physical education program, ice fishing has become a way for youth to learn a traditional activity and increase their physical activity outdoors. Experienced community volunteers, Elders and teachers take every opportunity to pass on their knowledge onto the youth about ice fishing, which has been an important part of their cultural history. The sport also takes advantage of their community’s natural asset; the First Nation is situated alongside a beautiful lake aptly named Fishing Lake.
