Takla Trap House
Connecting the perceived distance between traditional fur trading practices and preserving culture in the 21st century.
The long-standing tradition of fur trapping is still a thriving economy in small remote reserves such as Takla Nation. For well over a year I have worked for Takla, and have witnessed firsthand a handful of members still practising these skills. These are their actual lives. This isn't about being noble and living in harmony with nature, this is what they do to make a living. Yet, there remains the conflict they live between trying to uphold traditional practices while industry and the ever-growing presence of the modern world encroaches upon the preservation of culture. As I have never lived on reserve or in a remote destination before; I find this fascinating and believe others will also. -Levi Davis (Director)
