Pull of the North - A 2000 mile canoe descent to find the Yukon Rivers first inhabitants
In 2016 wilderness guide Ian Finch, filmmaker Caroline Cote, Photographer Jay Kolsch and canoeist Martin Trahan descended the Yukon River from its source at the glacier in British Columbia to its mouth at Emmonak, Bering Sea, Alaska. This remote 70 day successful endeavor was to research, document and film the lives and people of many native groups that inhabit the rivers vast course and to learn about their heritage, traditions and ways of life in a changing climate. The expedition story appeared in print in Sidetracked Vol.8 and online at Sidetracked.com, Canoe and Kayak Magazine, Mens Health Magazine, British Exploring, Explorers Connect and Dinette Magazine. The film "River of Belonging" is set for release in 2017.
