About The Event
Join us as we continue to prepare the land! After the day is over we will eat a traditional native meal, some songs on the drum, and a traditional story. We are getting things ready for our upcoming orchard planting and other exciting projects that are coming this year.
We Will Have Expert Education!
Tree removal is dangerous! The standing people / one-leggeds (the Native names for trees) are not always easy to lay down. But leading the tree removal process will be professional, expert tree remover, Noah Gordon along with his experienced team (both his siblings). You will pick up expert tree removal techniques and safety tips.
For those who cannot work a chainsaw don't worry! There are many ways that you can help to contribute. There is a place for everyone to be able to help and you will also be a part of taking care of FireKeepers International's land, giving back to create a safe haven for community in the future... and we are so grateful to you for helping!

WHAT IF IM NOT A LUMBERJACK?

We will have things that non-lumberjacks can do so don't worry! There are plenty of things we need help with. As you know, many hands make light work but many hands also mean many mouths to feed. So, come on out and meet others from the tribe who are making the vision happen on this beautiful land.
