Director Carol Geddes in attendance. For ages 9+

Two episodes of this beautifully animated, made-in-the-Yukon youth series. The stories take place in the nineteenth century on the northwest coast of Canada, and follow the adventures of two young Tlingits: Anash and Kole.

Episode 1: The Unseen Enemy

Anash loses his parents in a deadly smallpox epidemic. His best friend and servant Kole is weakened by the disease but survives. Still grappling with his loss, Anash learns he has a gift of power and a destiny to fulfill. As a result, Anash and Kole set out on a quest to reunite all the pieces of the Sun-Rock in order to bring peace to the land.

Episode 7: The Deer Captive

With Kole away assisting warriors in an attack on the inland Hudson’s Bay fort, Anash reluctantly agrees to act as a “Deer Captive” of the Kan Da Ta.  Taking the form of a ritual manhunt and capture, the ceremony will help foster peace among Tlingit tribes.
