RIP Serge Bouchard, anthropologist and writer from Quebec ๐Ÿฅบ

He studied the knowledge of the Innu hunters of Labrador and the culture of long-haul truckers in northern Canada.

During his career, Serge Bouchard published several books on his land with native communities, on the animals of our forests, on historical figures left behind, etc. Commonplaces will be the subject of seven collections.

Kyle Worl revitalized Native Games in Juneau, bringing the Juneau NYO team back to the state competition for the first time in 28 years, in 2018.

Read how Kyle went from being afraid to take a risk to helping share NYO Games with more communities:

WOW way to go Kyle Worl from your Yukon supporters at YASC!๐Ÿ˜€

In an alternate universe, Kyle Worl never received the Native Youth Olympic (NYO) Games Healthy Coach Award two years in a row. He never took first place in the Knuckle Hop at World Eskimo Olympics. He never revitalized Native Games in Juneau, bringing the Juneau NYO team back to the state competition for the first time in 28 years, in 2018.

In an alternate universe, Kyle Worl said no to taking a risk.
