An Ojibwe deer hunter takes nothing for granted, considering each act sacred

Greg ‘Biskakone’ Johnson belongs to the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, part of the Ojibwe Native American tribe in Wisconsin. He keeps his people’s heritage alive by carrying on their hunting traditions. Far from a sport hunter, Biskakone considers every one of his actions to be consequential, steeped in meaning and spirituality, from asking for forgiveness after taking a life to sharing the harvest with his community. The US director Finn Ryan’s short documentary follows Biskakone through a single hunting cycle, from preparatory prayer to crafting traditional Ojibwe clothing from buckskin.
