Spirit and the Masks

A group of First Nations youth were tasked by CFYN to bring to life their idea of what First Nations education should look like. Lysander Daigeneault, Cassandra Kindness Miller, Nicholas Koe, and Robert Dean had 25 days to design, animate and record the soundtrack for their animated short: Spirit & the Masks.“An excellent expression of what First Nation youth are doing in the modern context to reunite with their identities, cultures and languages. And [sic] expressing themselves using modern day technology.”The youth were assisted by Lance Burton and Rebecca Law from the Youth of Today Society.

PopCulture Smash! – Which Star Rules

“A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away”… countless pop-culture fans have debated on which sci-fi space film franchise best represents the egregiously popular genre. That’s right, I’m talking about “Star Wars” and “Star Trek”. Ever since the release of George Lucas’s “Star Wars”, there have been countless arguments as to which of the two “Star” franchises are better, and I, Alexander “Aqualink” Gatensby, intend to find the answer. The first thing you need to know before reading on this topic, is that although on the surface, the argument might seem just like a school-ground “my dad could beat up your dad” but, I assure you that it is much more than that.

Medallions of Hope

As we pass through the tumultuous journey that is life, we constantly fight off monsters of all shapes and sizes. We are constantly plagued by feelings of depression, anger and despair. Some manage to fight them off a little easier than others, but everyone can do with a bit of help. This is why the Medallions of Hope were created. Thinking of the people who need a little more inspiration in their lives, these tokens were made for the sole purpose of helping out. In the coming weeks, a myriad of handcrafted medallions will decorate the trees by the riverfront and other places around town. Each medallion will carry this message: someone cares.
