We set up at the beautiful John Tizya Centre with the assistance of Megan Williams, Heritage Director, Mary Jane Moses (Heritage researcher, filmmaker and participant) and Brandon Kyikavichik. Brandon Kyikivachik is the FirstVoices Technician (First Voices is a great website dedicated First Language teaching + media). He was our liaison with the youth.
We also had the wonderful assistance and presence of Joel Peter, an elder fluent in speaking the Gwich’in language and Jane Montgomery, an experienced Gwich’in language teacher and translator.
