Tootinaowaziibeeng knowledge keepers keeping traditions alive in the territory

December 21, 2020

Treaty 2 Territory – Tootinaowaziibeeng knowledge keepers Paul and Lillian Lynxleg have been practicing and teaching our Anishinaabe ways of living off the land by trapping and hunting for over 40 years at their trapping cabin just north of Tootinaowaziibeeng in the beautiful Duck Mountains. Paul Lynxleg has been trapping and hunting for over 40 years and now has passed this knowledge to his son who is presently trapping in the mountain with his own cabin near by.

Lillian Lynxleg is the language instructor at the local school in Tootinaowaziibeeng and teaches the children land based education activities. This cabin was built by Paul Lynxleg over 25 years ago and continues to build and maintain it for family and community gatherings. Paul and Lillian welcome visitors who pass by or stop in for a lunch, make a fire to enjoy the outdoors. If you have the opportunity, to stop by the cabin, there is a guest book for all visitors to sign. Over the years people from all over the world have stopped in and used the cabin for a rest stop and lunch break. Members from Tootinaowaziibeeng use the cabin regularly for family cookouts, sleepovers and hunting.

It is a beautiful place to visit, as I have over the last 40 years myself. Paul and Lillian Lynxleg are my parents. They would like to wish everyone a safe holiday season and stop by for a visit.
