The Provider, Jayden Soroka, Yukon, 9min

“The Provider” brings to life the experience of a C/TFN citizen Gary Sidney's first hunt at the age of thirty three, eighteen years later than tradition holds, an event that would define his place in his community and open his eyes to where he belongs.

If the Moutain Can Talk, Allan Code, Yukon, 22min

In 2018, the Tr'ondek Hwech'in invited a contingent of Māori from the Taranaki Iwi to visit the Yukon and share their views on granting rights to natural features and their experience successfully introducing the concept of legal personality of the Awa Tupua/Whanganui River and the Te Urewera forest in Aotearoa, New Zealand. This documentary features interviews with leaders and citizens of Carcross/Tagish First Nation, Taranaki Iwi and the Tr'ondek Hwech'in.

Tlatsini, Mike Rudyk, Yukon, 25 m

Master carver Wayne Carlick has long dreamed to see the routes his ancestors travelled along the Taku watershed and inland. In 2018, Carlick realized that dream when he and a group of Taku River Tlingit First Nations set off down the Taku River in a Traditional Tlingit ocean-going canoe.
