In August 2013 I will be hiking the Chilkoot Trail for two weeks as part of the Chilkoot Trail Artist Residency Program (more on the residency and past residencies at The Artist's Journey). I will be creating a multilayered graphic story that critically explores the myths and stories about the North and the trail and I will be posting these stories online and as a published piece. I will also be facilitating two comic jam workshops for kids, youth and families in Whitehorse and Skagway where we will be creating a collaborative comic/map of the trail. More >
I would like to acknowledge, from my very limited understanding*, that the Chilkoot Trail is situated on the traditional territories and trading routes of the Tlingit of the Jilkoot Kwáan/Chilkoot Tribe and Jilkaat Kwáan/Chilkat Tribe, the Carcoss Tagish, the Taku River Tlingit/Áa Tlein Kwáan and the Tutchone people and thank them for allowing us to travel on this land.
