Shākāt Team visiting Old Crow.
Photographs 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.
We had an amazing adventure visiting the farthest North community. A small town of unique architecture and history, with temperatures well below zero and welcoming locals. We got invited to go for a hunt with local Elders, had we stayed a bit longer. The students were shy at first but wormed up as the day went along learning about photography, video, writing and songwriting.
