Hello there, Anishnaabe here.
I currently live in southern ontario, but for years i have been pondering the thought of going to live up north, to live off the land. There is no
happiness for me in these cities, no true Natural Beauty.
Everyone worried about what phone they should get or what dinning set they should buy (etc,), its actually really 'pathetic' in my opinion. Also
another reason, the 'Required Education' for jobs nowadays is only going up, and i will never be able to get a GOOD paying job that i would like,
and could live off. (My fault for being an ignorant kid in school lol)
Also its not just those reasons listed above, but the fact is i havent been Truly Happy in almost 3-4 years. The girl i thought i really had something
with, and really thought the world of, just up and left.(I still cant wrap my head around this) Then their was alchohol and drugs, but my point is all
i want to do is be 'one with nature'. Like how my people used to live, working together to share a common goal, To Survive.
I have been thinking about 2 different locations, Northern Manitoba, or get right up north into Iqaluit, Nunavut. Ive been reading on Nunavut, and its
a beautiful place with a vast wilderness. Im not 'new' to the woods, so their is no problem there. The only problem i think i am going to see, is
seeting up my housing needs. (Few options are: buy a piece of land and build a cabin. or just buy a cabin with a little bit of land) I am NOT wanting
to live in any city or near any city. I want to be in a remote area, or 'off-the-radar' so to speak.
So if you know, have been there, it would be greatly appreciated if i could get some advice on what i should do, or some tips to help me on my
Note: i am most likely going to leave this August, even if i dont have place to go i will find some way.
Thanks in advance, Anishnaabe
