Shākāt Team visiting Carmacks.
Text, photos and video by Agnieszka Pajor.
Over the past few months the Shākāt Team traveled to a number of different communities to collect stories from youth all around the territory. We were struck by their creativity and unique perspectives on life in the Yukon.
Such a great day as we visited the local community centre and worked with Yukon College facilitators. We focused mainly on making videos as we encouraged the students to come up with ways to show how they do things “Carmacks way.” We could tell that this theme was a hit as students grabbed cameras and recorded walking through a door, dancing, picking up friends and resolving conflict “Carmacks way.” They used editing software to complete their videos and even screened them for everyone to see and enjoy.
