Tribute to Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation Elder Stephen Frost

Elder Stephen Frost

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”.

I said Okay, and I followed that little kid.

When I entered a house, I found that the person who invited me was elder Stephen Frost.

We talked about our cultures, connections, stories, and common values heart-to-heart. And this picture was taken during that visit.

I was touched by his warmth, wisdom and kindness.

Rest-in-peace, dear Elder! And strength to your loved ones.
