Journeys to Adäka takes us into carving sheds, kitchens and community halls where artists and their families are reconnecting with their ancestors, healing, and moving personal mountains to each find their light.
The process is familiar – rehearsals, training, crafting – but the backdrop of distant northern communities and the intimate access serve up both difficult lessons and inspiration. Journeys to Adäka paints a moving portrait of self-empowered indigenous communities at an inflection point in our history. This documentary was produced in association with Yukon First Nations Culture and Tourism Association.
