K'i Tah Amongst the Birch

| 10 min

Filmmaker/activist Melaw Nakehk’o has spent the pandemic with her family at a remote land camp in the Northwest Territories, “getting wood, listening to the wind, staying warm and dry, and watching the sun move across the sky.” In documenting camp life—activities like making fish leather and scraping moose hide—she anchors the COVID experience in a specific time and place.

Part of THE CURVE, a collection of social distancing stories that bring us together. Enjoy more works from this series here .
