They say a picture is worth a thousand words. PROTECTING THE PEEL WATERSHED: VOICES FROM CANADA’S NORTH traveled thousand of miles back to Fort McPherson for a special display in the Gwich’in Community. Joanna Jack with CPAWS Yukon, helped bring the exhibit North after it’s March debut at the SAW Gallery in Ottawa.

“It’s one small project, but we were really wanting to share with them and the rest of Canada the power of their words and their connections to the land. Without that, there would be no case for Peel protection, it really comes from the people who are protecting this beautiful land,” Jack told CKLB on Monday.

The one day special display was held at the Rec Complex, hosted by the Tetlit Gwich’in ahead of this week’s Gwich’in Tribal Council Assembly.

Short excerpts from individual interviews were presented alongside stunning photographs from Yukon photographers Cathie Archbould and Peter Mather.

The exhibit will travel to Dawson City, Yukon on October 16th.
