Erasing Winnemem Presence

After investing two full days of constructing the arbor, bark huts, setting up the camp kitchen, and making other preparations to hold the Winnemem coming of age ceremony the Winnemem must invest almost equal time removing all traces of themselves from the land that used to be a Winnemem village site.

This video shows the process of removing the camp with narration by Mark Franco, headman of the tribe explaining how things would be different if they were holding this ceremony on their own tribal land.
