Join us as we head live to the Georgian Bay Islands National Park and Beausoleil Island National Historic Site to learn about the tools, techniques, and basics of making stone arrowheads; the same as Indigenous people did on Beausoleil Island over 5000 years ago. See Shawn Corbiere (Ojibway) make a Flint Arrowhead, and attach it to an arrow with pine resin, and sinew. Ask him questions about the traditional lives of Ojibway people in the Georigan Bay Region of Ontario.
