Spirit and the Masks

Updated: Apr 7

The Story of What Was and What Will Be.



A group of First Nations youth were tasked by CFYN to bring to life their idea of what First Nations education should look like. Lysander Daigeneault, Cassandra Kindness Miller, Nicholas Koe, and Robert Dean had 25 days to design, animate and record the soundtrack for their animated short: Spirit & the Masks.


“An excellent expression of what First Nation youth are doing in the modern context to reunite with their identities, cultures and languages. And [sic] expressing themselves using modern day technology.”


The youth were assisted by Lance Burton and Rebecca Law from the Youth of Today Society.
