“…This is a lovely, positive representation of your visit to the community.” – Megan Williams Heritage Manager, Natural Resources Department – Vuntut Gwitchin Government

In late August, 2019, three teachers and a custodian from School District 23 traveled to the remote Vuntut Gwich’in outpost of Old Crow, the northernmost community in the Yukon, 120 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. This is their story.
