About Merchants of the Wild
Merchants of the Wild follows a group of Indigenous adventurers as they journey along ancient paths that were traditionally used by Indigenous traders during fur trade expeditions. Each season takes us on a different expedition through the breadth of territories across Turtle Island. Guided by local Elders and Knowledge Keepers, our adventurers embark on a journey of a lifetime.
Season three of Merchants of the Wild takes us deep into the mountains of Syilx territory in British Columbia. Six Indigenous explorers spend 25 days in the wilderness learning to reconnect with their culture. The brave adventurers begin their journey with only a handful of necessary tools and a limited food supply, having to decide what they’ll do next. Throughout the expedition, they must rely solely on the land, each other and traditional teachings to survive.
