    Default A really cool event....

    Next week there is a really cool event going on in Northern Idaho, and I'd like to invite you all to attend. It is rendevous to celebrate the 200th anniversary of David Thompsons explorations of the northwest, and there is a Kalispel Indian encampment. Highlights of the event will be;
    - traditional plant use
    - camas bulb baking
    - meat drying
    - fish weir construction
    - fish hook making
    -moccassion making
    - Fur Trade skills

    there will also be several 36' voyageur style canoes taking people down the river to the actual site of the orginial Kalipsel House trading post. I will be there, as crew on one of those canoes. Hopefully, some of our western members can make it for this event.
    here are a couple of links for it
