Based on extended work with Teetł’it Gwich’in, this article
illuminates the importance of traveling and trails and markers in
the boreal forests of northern Canada. The article discusses in detail
the author’s experience with a pedagogy in traveling on the land
and focuses on one particular land mark: a lobstick. Through the example
of making a lobstick, this article illustrates how the land is an
entanglement of relations between people, places, memories, and movement.
