Launched in 2016, Trails in Tandem is an outdoor education initiative dedicated to bringing Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth together in nature. Built on the belief that natural environments offer one of the greatest places for us to connect, Trails in Tandem team seeks to get youth outside and bridge the gap between northern and southern Canada. They believe that to share a trail is to share a story; so they work to give youth opportunities to connect through shared experiences in nature.
In July 2017, Trails in Tandem partnered with the Fort Norman Métis Land Corporation and embarked on an expedition on the Canol Heritage Trail in the Sahtu region of the Northwest Territories. The expedition brought together youth from the urban south and Indigenous youth from the north. The expedition was filmed and is now in post-production, with a documentary expected in the Spring of 2018.
