“An amazing experience and a way to connect with the land and the First Nations communities.”
Oliver Simpson, 2019 trip participant.
“The biggest lesson for me came in the form of getting a sense of what it is to live in Moose Factory…. I learned about their difficulties in getting clean water, getting access to healthcare, and other things that we at Crescent consider to be daily ‘givens’. Now that I am back, I know that we should pay much more attention and provide much more support to the people in our nation, in our own province.”
Nicholas De Villa Choi, 2019 trip participant.
