The Trails of the Ancestors have always considered to be a vision to re-trace our past and see it through the eyes of our elders.  Traveling by canoe, our people honor their ancestors and experience the traditional spirit that will carry on with them for generations.  Today, we have had over 2000 people who have participated since the Trials of the Ancestors was implemented in 1992.
