Old Crow is home of Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation and the most northerly community in the Yukon.
In 2018, in the streets of Old Crow, I was dancing Bhangra randomly.
Then a child approached me and said, “My grandpa wants to invite you for tea”.

During my visit to Vancouver Island, she took a break from journalism to do what she loved doing in her earlier life.
We went to Mt. Douglas to fuse Bhangra and Highland dances for creating cross-cultural bridges and unity-in-diversity.
Bhangra in Dawson City, Yukon. Video by Bill Kendrick who is also a councillor with the City of Dawson municipal council.
This spot is a 15-minute bike ride from my cabin in the wilderness. Enjoy the dance! Experience our spectacular Yukon river and nature!
With gorgeous Sheep Mountain in the backdrop, Bhangra happiness from the Kluane country of the Yukon. This mountain is home to hundreds of Dall sheep, which make it even more gorgeous.
Although being in such a vast and open land, I didn’t need to wear a mask.
The simple purpose of this video is a gentle reminder – wear it wherever it is needed because wearing a mask is very important to stop the spread!
Even the birds are saying ‘yes’.
Sending happiness with joyful bhangra dance at the Arctic Ocean, Tuktoyaktuk, NWT.

These researchers and scientists from the University of Victoria (BC) were doing their research at the Arctic Ocean in Tuktoyaktuk, NWT.
They saw me dancing Bhangra there and asked me if they also could join.
Please don’t judge those embraces at the end of the video! The hugs took place during pre-COVID times when it was so normal, natural and awesome.
In the vast and open land of the Yukon, it is always great to open up the heart to the fullest and just dance being in unification with nature.
