Saugeen Ojibway Nations

In 2013, URBAN ran the first First Nations program, designed to allow aboriginal youth from the Saugeen Ojibway Nations, located in the Bruce Peninsula, to experience URBAN activities near their home.  We targeted two streams, Sucker Creek and Abermarle Creek.  The following videos offer a glimpse of the activities carried out during 2013 and 2014.  All videos were shot on location and produced by Emmett Fraser for URBAN.  Ms. Lindsay Chegahno, one of the chaperones for the indigenous students, and Ms. Janna Chegahno, Territorial Resources Coordinator of the SON, provided commentaries that we included in the Stream sampling and Sample processing videos, respectively.
