The Pinehouse Photography Club

The Pinehouse Photography Club "... Nothing is worse then seeing people, youth in particular, sad, depressed, and living a life of addictions, and not being able to help them. And this affects people all over the world! As a community and as a country, we need to do more for our youth to prevent these problems and not just providing a bandaide solution. As a primary care nurse, this is very fustrating when seeing the people you have grown to know and care for, suffer :( I ask myself all the time, "how can I help? What can I do? How can I make things better?" Personal pain and experience with photogoraphy taught me a lot! ..." 

"... Residents of Saskatchewan's Northern Village of Pinehouse are using photography to heal from trauma - The Pinehouse Photography Club is helping residents in northern Saskatchewan capture a beautiful perspective on life. VIDEO TIME 9:51 Posted: Dec 15, 2018 ..."

CBC's #IndigenousEyes photo contest for aboriginal youth now accepting submissions that focus on elders

#IndigenousEyes photo contest puts lens on aboriginal elders

CBC's photo contest for aboriginal youth now accepting submissions that focus on elders

CBC is launching its #IndigenousEyes photo contest, and this year the lens is focused on the role of elders in aboriginal communities.

Lisa Charleyboy, the editor of Urban Native Magazine, will join me and CBC's Gloria Macarenko on the judging panel to choose a winner for the photo contest.

For Charleyboy, the role of elders in aboriginal communities came into focus in 2013, when she took part in an indigenous writing residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts.

There she met Pahan Pte Ste Win, a Lakota woman from Winnipeg. She asked Pte Ste Win for guidance on her writing, and the two hit it off.

"She had mentioned that she was interested in adopting me, so we did a formal adoption ceremony as we closed the residency," she said.
