An excerpt from a past winner:

“I love teaching and sharing with others the knowledge that I have gained in both traditional and western science realms of knowledge, understanding of the Yukon, and connecting with the land. I find when I am out on the land, it just comes natural to share that knowledge about my surroundings and the experiences that I have had along my path, with young and old alike.”
