Video Animated Short: "How People Got Fire" by Daniel Janke

Watch "How People Got Fire" by Daniel Janke (16 min). In the village of Carcross, in the Tagish First Nation, Grandma Kay invites the local children into her kitchen and tells them the traditional tale of how Crow brought fire to people. As the story unfolds in this animated short, we also meet 12-year-old Tish, an introspective, talented girl who feels drawn to the elder’s kitchen. Here, past and present blend, myth and reality meet, and the metaphor of fire infuses all in a location that lies at the heart of this Native community’s spiritual and cultural memory.
