In this second video of the series, “Into the Sugar Bush (Part 2)” we return to Bill Paulson’s Sugar Camp on the White Earth Reservation in Northern Minnesota as the first rounds of taps are emptied & the boil begins.
Paulson speaks on the importance of living the culture and the hardships of doing so in modern times facing challenges with conflicting commitments such as keeping what most would call normal “employment” given that traditional activity such as the gathering of Maple Syrup is not something which can be easily integrated with a normal 9 to 5.
Paulson has opened the space at Camp Turtle Island as an Anishinaabe Cultural Camp and encourages the general public to participate in these types of activities.
