Jennifer and Jamie have a heck of a time figuring out how to get onto Manitoulin Island, Ontario, the largest freshwater island in the world! After discovering that the ferry has stopped running for the winter, our adventurers eventually make it over via the swing bridge to Little Current! Here they meet 15-year-old First Nations dancer Elizabeth Trudeau, a member of the Wikwemikong reserve, the only unceded reserve in all of Canada. Elizabeth invites Jamie and Jennifer to a traditional Powwow, complete with jingle and hoop dancing. It is a chance for Jamie to join in the drumming, and a delicious, moose-filled feast! Then it's off to meet John Strickland, the "Fossil Man", who teaches our CG-ers that "licking" can be the key to finding some of the many fossils on the island. Later, Jennifer and Jamie visit the Blue Jay Creek Hatchery, where Lake Huron fish are raised from eggs to "yearling" size, when they can be released into the wild. Our adventurers get to witness this firsthand, as they help deliver a batch into Lake Manitou! All in all, it's a far-from-typical day of dynamite dancing, fossil licking, and fish freeings, on this island episode of CG Kids!
