Tsumugu Weaving Our Stories

Tsumugu Weaving Our Stories screening, a short film featuring stories from Yukoners of Japanese descent.  Playing on May 19, in honour of Asian Heritage Month.

Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn more about the cultural and economic contributions that Canadians of Asian origin have made, and continue to make to the growth and prosperity of Canada. Here in Yukon, we have several culture organizations from around the world.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives from the Chinese, Filipino, and Indian communities in Whitehorse to discuss the role of cultural communities and their contribution to Canadian society by building a strong sense of identity.

 
TSUMUGU
Produced by JCAY and Midnight Light Media
This film is a collection of experiences from Japanese-Canadians, from several generations, reflecting on the importance of language and cultural connection in defining identity. A strong community solidifies a sense of home and belonging, offering a safe space for self-expression and ultimately, self-determination. This cross-generational journey through reflective storytelling highlights the importance of a strong sense of cultural identity in finding a place in Canada’s future.
 
Panel Discussion Moderator
Yoko Oda, President, Japanese Canadian Association of Yukon
Speakers
Yvonne Clarke, Member of the Legislative Assembly
Alfred Au, President, Canadian Chinese Association of Yukon
Jibran Ahmed, Founder, Facebook group “Indians in Yukon (Whitehorse) “
