Have you ever been to one of those small towns in Saskatchewan (or wherever I hope) where every driver you pass waves at you? That’s Kawacatoose First Nation. Just a friendly place.
Back in March I had the pleasure of doing a marketing residency out there for a larger project called N’we Jinan. Eddy went out there in December to do a Dance residency, the students had a time, even performed at the end of the two weeks. In total the students did a music, photography, videography, dance and marketing residencies.
I went out for their final session, the marketing residency. N’we Jinan is a pretty cool organization. They go all over Canada making videos and songs on First Nation Reserves, working directly with elementary and high school students. The creativity I witnessed in my short time there was simply inspiring. The students love coming up with ideas, making music, developing a video and for my purposes, making a website, t-shirt, stickers, posters and a photo book.
