Here Are The News

In Edith Josie’s unique words, she simply reported events as she saw them. But for outsiders, she opened doors to Old Crow, her tiny village of 300 people, 80 miles north of the Arctic Circle. She started out unable to read English and she eventually had her columns syndicated in several Canadian papers and appeared on radio with Peter Gzowski and on television with Front Page Challenge. Edith Josie shows us the unique way of life of the Gwitchin people and how modern development threatens their life necessities.
