I'm not making fun, it's just the idea is funny. The youth have a difficult time enjoying the activities that other kids in Canada do. Disco, or clubbing is just not done.
The kids spend a great deal of time wandering about, or gathering in each other's home, or going to the community centre. A basic life, tough for the youth. Not many distractions. Thank goodness for MTV.
Dress Code: Jeans, runners, t-shirts, denim jackets, and of course the required baseball cap.
Airfare is extremly high to Fort Severn, very inconvenient to reach, schedules vary, and weather plays a big role in your arrival on time (same day even)
Float planes have been the key to travel throughout this area for years, however are severly restricted by weather, and the changes of seasons.
The native people have a certain sense of humour. They tend to see things around them with a clarity that others don't. They often poke fun at themselves, with much tongue-in-cheek humour. A dry wit.

If you live where it is hot and muggy in the summer, then summers here might be a treat. However, you will be plagued by mosquitoes, flies, and especially the dreaded black flies. These little suckers have been known to drive a sane man nuts. They swarm, like a cloud around your head, and each breath you take, is like a crazy carpet ride for these beggers.
Extreme cold will plague a visitor to Fort Severn in the winter months. Winter starts early November, and lasts well into May.
Temperatures can easily hit -50 degrees.
Fishing, hunting, or just plain enjoying the numerous wildlife seen along the edge of the quiet bays.
Equipment: Fishing rods, hunting equipment, and a canoe.
