Old Crow - Day Two

The workshop starts at 9am...so this means it feels a little like midnight since it is still pitch black outside. 
We (the Our World team) walk from the newer part of town to old town along the airstrip and following the moon, which takes about 15 minutes and when we get to the Tyzia Centre...Jessica is already waiting for us...yay!
Then, most of the rest of the students arrive on the bus at about 9:05.
Today is the last day that we have Mary Jane Moses and Brenda Kay so we have them very busy  translating the stories that are ready into Gwich'in. They are both VERY generous with their time.
As always, and as per normal, everyone is in a different stage of their projects:
Jessica gets right to work on creating her flip book animation...this dedicated artist draws all day! 
Sheila has almost all her media: photos, video and text and is ready to record as soon as translation is ready.
Caleb works on his artwork and backgrounds as we solidify his story.
Darcy also works on his backgrounds and characters as his translation is completed.
Jaanelle and Melayna are figuring out style but their story is ready and it also gets translated.
The day goes by FAST!
Luckily, Frances has the grand idea to take a group picture today (before things get really crazy), so here we are:
