Stoodis Science Virtual Hide Camp

Welcome to SciXchange's second annual hide camp!

In September 2020, SciXchange hosted a hide camp in Sioux Lookout with knowledge holders, Jean Marshall, Kanina Terry, and Julia Prinselaar. With the help of filmmakers from Cricket Cave, they captured the intricacies of each step and the connections they shared with each other along the way. 

Please enjoy these videos. We hope that you learn more about the rich and diverse scientific knowldeges that Indigenous communities have and are revitalizing around hide tanning practices.
