Dokis First Nation

  • Episode 13

Chuck visits the Dokis First Nation lands nestled within the flows of the French River. Norman Dokis is waiting for him in his pontoon to take him fishing but the man has a few other surprises that will make Chuck realise how much history is hidden in this beautiful community. Norman teaches Chuck about junk fish, the species that his ancestors ate and that have sadly been forgotten over the years. These less desired fish are delicious when you know how to clean them and prepare them. Norman cooks a shore lunch that feels more like a shore feast with all the junk fish and moose eggrolls. Norman’s family is there, sitting in nature and enjoying every bit of food that nature and the land have to offer.
