Live sessions, such as the Hesquiaht Language Action Stories & Language Session, Experiential Panel Discussion on Cultural Appropriation, Joe Martin’s čapaciił presentation, In the Making: Artist Show & Tell, and the Artist Talk with Hjalmer Wenstob, were all recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel. Several films produced for the festival premiered on YouTube including the series Carver to Carver, hosted by Gordon Dick, Robinson Cook’s five-part workshop Introduction to Wood Carving with Hand Tools and Gisele Martin’s film čapaciił~Traditional Canoe Carving in ƛaʔuukʷiʔatḥ Tribal Parks with Joe Martin. These films have continued to be meaningful resources for learning and conversation beyond the festival.
A Self-Guided Walking Tour Map provided a way for festival participants on the Esowista Peninsula to view local public carvings in Tofino, Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park.
