Any ideas on what i can make out of this? 🤔

Our Birch bark harvest season has begun, its my favourite month. I read the forest signs at this time of year, waiting and watching in anticipation. Firstly the snow departs, our lakes slowly melt to a vibrant blue,and then small significant green shoots appear, fragrances are released from the mosses on the forest floor as you walk, before the right time to harvest is complete, a time when she releases her beautiful resource and allows us to share.
I love this tree so much, my daughter has the tree in her name. Freja Ella Björksjön Rees.

Many people ask or wonder about this particular subject. "Because of our awareness of the importance of ecology, harvesting birch bark triggers disputes over the question, does removing the bark or cortex kill the tree or does the tree continue to grow? The majority of people are more inclined to condem than to submerge themselves into the world of birch bark forest folk for harvesting their raw material.
In any case, harvesting the bark only without touching the fragile cambium layer, the tree lives on, and will grow new bark. It will begin to grow more slowly and its wood will become harder"

[06/09/20]   Good Morning everyone!
We at Wild Spirit have been busy over the last few weeks with fixing our kit and kennels after the winter season, there is always alot to do after winter, plus with the Coronavirus and an abrubt end to our season, we have been a little stressed regarding finances etc...but extremely lucky to be able to promote sponsor a dog, which is something that we have wanted to do, and have been asked to do by our guests previously.

Today we will be going out checking the Birch Trees, and seeing if they are ready for tapping.

We are looking forward to our next project, which will be reveled in due time, but right now we are preparing for it. This project we are going to be partnering up with Darren Hamlin, really exciting times!

We all having an Amadou party tonight.. Great results from the humble hoof fungus..or Forms Formintaris.

Taken directly from the tree and processed there right away without boiling or hammering, which is completely unnecessary.

We will use the Amadou leathers and incorporate it into the making of our reindeer skin clothing.

Here are a few Parka's I've finished (or nearly finished) recently, they are all very unique with many different features. Some of these features I have done for the first time. I use many different materials such as light and dark reindeer skin inlays, hand stitched piping in light and dark leather, indigenous cultural emblems, ptarmigan feet, moose teeth, bone beads, leather braids and leather fringes. I also have 3 different types of pocket I can sew into the parka. I would be interested to know the features people like the most and what designs they would choose if they were designing one for themselves? Please share so I can have feedback.

Under each photo I have written a description of the feature for clarity.

My favourite right now is the pure white parka with the simple dark inlay, this is the first white parka I have made and it is special in this regard.

My Wife and I have been fully immersed in wilds of Northern Jämtland, indigenous skills which we want to pass onto the next interested generation.

Working with reindeer/carabou skins over many years has taught me so much, and given me so much respect for northern indigenous cultures of the past maybe one day these lost skills will come back to our future.

On the spot Amadou extraction, minutes after being taken off the tree, no boiling or hammering or chopping up is ever needed. I Make it as Thin or as thick as i want.

Amadou is best found in the top, the rest is disgarded.

I find which ones work only by testing the fungus using my thumb, to see if its a good one or not for Amadou.
I also make clothing from Amadou using it to inlay my Reindeer skin clothing.

mailchi.mp Tours have now stopped due to the current situation, and dog sponsoring is something that we at Wild Spirit have been planning for a long time.  Now that our tours have stopped prematurely, we can foresee that the business will be hit hard in the future months. 

The Iditarod

Much has been reported over the years about the Iditarod and the sled dogs that run the race. Before you stake claim to an opinion you should be sure that you're on the path of truth. Over its nearly 50 year history the Iditarod has improved the lives of not just the dogs that run the race but the lives of all dogs. There is much more to come. #thetruth #iditarod #mushing #sleddogs #comesee
