Updated: Apr 6

Shakat Clubs are developed to provide opportunities to learn new skills related to video music and journalism. Mentors are brought out to a community and those willing to learn get the chance to operate equipment necessary, learn new techniques and produce something meaningful to them.


In Teslin, the journalism students were gifted with a story from local Elder, Margaret Garolitz who made a moose hide vests nearly 2 decades ago. The story has now prompted a song and inspired a new generation of vest makers.
