Elder Glen Anaquod: Tipi Raising

Glen Anaquod is an Aboriginal elder from the Muscowpetung First Nation. He is involved with the University of Regina Aboriginal Student Center as an active elder. The grandmothers in his community taught him how to set up a tipi as a young boy and now has taken his part to pass the methods he has been taught to students. As an elder, Glen enjoys being able to share the traditions of the tipi with the younger generations.

The photographs below are links to videos of the tipi raising in which Glen taught students how to raise a tipi in
his Saulteaux tradition.
