To celebrate the Gwich’in Social and Cultural Institute’s 17th anniversary celebration (1993-2010), a regional Gwich’in legends workshop was held in Aklavik in January 2010 with Gwich’in Elders and youth, Gwich’in language instructors, GSCI Board of Directors and staff, Gwich’in translators, Life Skills program students, and Aklavik residents. Elders from Aklavik, Fort McPherson, Inuvik and Tsiigehtchic recalled legends in the Gwich’in language that were told to them in their youth by their parents and grandparents.
