A number of digital stories were made with youth, elders and speakers about different aspects of community safety and or Gitksan Wellness. We are learning that there are many ways to share ideas and even fun ways like storytelling by making a short video.
Here are the stories that were created!
Gitanyow – in partnership with Gitksan Health, a Take Back the Night walk was held to promote safe roads and don’t drink and drive. Here’s their digital story:
Take Back the Night from the Gitanyow Safety Team.
And from Glen Vowell: Video made by Art Sampson, Community Safety Facilitator. haa miya Art for the short story!
From the Gitxsan Elders, we held a session to explore the idea of wellness and what it means. The best people to talk to are the Elders, chiefs and matriarchs so a Wii Axho’osxwit event was pulled together to learn and share the concepts around wellness. Approximately 50 come out to share their widsom and teachings in a unique way. Here is a fun way to share ideas using Wii gyat, the trickster (not the Gitksan House Group) to guide the discussions throughout the day.
Many heartfelt thanks to all who participated in this event.
At the Get Connected Gitksan Career Fair – we were showcasing the photovoice project and asking people’s thoughts on “I feel when I…” and here is the digital story about what was said. Using a simple app like Flipagram is an easy and quick method to share a short digital story.
A number of digital stories were created which we showcased at the Tritown Theatre to see them on the big screen!
