Stories North was designed to address three primary goals: teaching the importance of listening and respect, especially as it applies to cross-cultural learning and working with Indigenous peoples; expanding students’ conceptualizations of the Yukon, its histories, its communities, its terrains and, most important, the interconnections flowing among these elements; and cultivating students’ abilities to engage in and expand debates around reconciliation by embracing discomfort, accepting responsibility and finding constructive, culturally sensitive, equitable and creative narratives that include the potential for reciprocity.
