Thanks again for being one of our valued listeners,
Two Black Sheep Radio Network
I apologize to everyone this morning, as I was having serious technical difficulties getting the show going. So, once I managed to fix things, I started a new broadcast, and what an hour it was.
Tommy Bird is one of the finest story tellers I've had the pleasure to speak with, and he has promised to return again to tell us more. He shares his life from a wee boy through today working with these sled dogs we so love, stories from the trap line, his races and a few tips on how he manages his team, and why they are so very exceptional.
For those of you that follow the show, you know I have mushers give props to their mentors. Well it's time for me to do the same with one of our own, Steven Laviolette of Tuuluuwak Sled Dogs. Steven is, in my definition, a true musher. He is the 4th generation, and raising the 5th in this wonderful lifestyle we love. His dogs are Siberian, and as I've seen with my own eyes, cared for as if they were his own flesh and blood children. You see, these dogs have, for going on 5 generations of people, been necessary to their lives for more than just the love of the mush. They are relied upon for feeding the family as they go out to hunt and trap, in the Traditional ways.
One of the things we are going to discuss is living a Traditional life where hunting and trapping in a part of survival, not sport. Done with prayer and reverence, the Gifts of Nature are just that: GIFTS. We will talk about Indigenous Beliefs and the thanks given for these Gifts versus sport hunting in a traditional musher's life, and how these dogs make survival possible, and are rewarded for their work on our behalf.
We are going to talk about raising children in the mushing lifestyle, and how this builds responsibility, character and compassion for ALL Living Beings. Steven will also talk about his kennel of Siberians, life on the trail in Quebec, races and tours, as well as the Spiritual aspects of a life he loves though these sled dogs. And of course, stories from the trail and times these dogs have saved his life.
He is mentor to many, although he will not claim to be, as he too seeks guidance from those he respects. We are going to talk about the importance of mentors in mushing, and the community we are so lucky to be a part of. Steven has been an invaluable friend and mentor to me, and my beloved Siberians for years now, and I invite you all to listen in, call in, and enjoy!
For those that know me, you know our motto is "Spiritual Enlightenment Through Sled Dogs." This is the basis for why Stormhawk Siberians do what we do. Although I freely speak of this, within many First Nations people who utilize sled dogs, it is NOT. Permission from the Elders must be sought, messages from Great Father and Ancestors must be delivered before these Sacred things can be spoken of to those non First Nations peoples.
So given this, it is my supreme honor that Marvin Noel Lizotte from Ecotourism Adventures has been given the go-ahead to speak with us on these most Sacred of topics: First Nations Spirituality with sled dogs.
Now, I know that the vast majority of you that listen in already know mushing. But this is a singular opportunity to know how this lifestyle we adore formed 1000's of years ago, and was then graciously passed though the generations, and to us today. As we all know, these sled dogs hold Magic in their Souls, and Marvin is going to tell us how that came to be.
No matter your level of skill with mushing, THIS is going to be a show to listen to. The early hour is of course so Marvin can speak with us, and then get on to the day's business with the dogs. Have a look at what he does at www.dogsledtour.ca on the web, and then join us early for the show, or listen on demand at your convenience thereafter!
This is a topic that is tantamount in today's declining society of instant gratifcation and youth's entitlement attitude, where personal responsibility seems to have been thrown out the window in the younger generations. As the family farms have disappeared over the last 100 years or so, so has the fundamental building blocks of a compassionate, empathetic and responsible children in our society.
Enter Jamie Van De Walle. She is a Michigan State educated woman with a BS in Animal Science and emphasis on Dairy production and management, and Agribusiness, living in Peshtigo Wisconsin on a family farm with her husband Eric, and daugter Riley. Jamie is a nutritionist at Dairyman's Advantage, a life-long musher and mother. She met her now husband Eric while working there, and she told me that her daughter's first race was when she was just 2.5 months old!
In a conversation with Jamie earlier, she explained, "I am a big backer of educating and exposing the youth
On the show we are going to discuss the importance of raising kids in a more "traditional" style for lack of a better word, with not just house dogs, but sled dogs and dairy cattle as well. She is going to tell us about how they've taught responsibility, compassion, empathy, as well as set goals for young Riley to achieve.
There is no way to explain the connection one feels with a kindred musher's Spirit. A true Musher living a "dogs first" life, rescuing from shelters and taking in retiring sled dogs so they can continue to do what they have been born to do: mush. I have more respect for Von Martin than I can describe in this small introduction to the show.
Von Martin is an Anthropoligist, public speaker, author of "A Long Way to Nome: The Serum Run '25 Expedition," that he told me was a "love story to his Huskies." A musician for 30 years and counting, we have been laughing about singing to our dogs, and that I personally cannot deafen them with my off tune singing as they are tone deaf. And for me, one of his greatest accomplishments, was the 2013 award from the Northwest Sled Dog Association for "Best Cared for Team," making him the only 5 time recipient of this annual award. And that tells me personally, everything I need to know about him to ask him to come speak with us for an hour.
Among the amazing dogs Von has had the pleasure of being responsible for, he will tell us Chewbacca's story, an incredible dog and dear friend that was able to participate in the 2011 Serum Run on the Iditarod Trail at age 13. Chewy is just one example of the care and love his dogs recieve to be able to keep on running into their senior years.
I encourage you to call in with questions for this true musher man, about his adventures and experiences with the dogs he calls family.
