Rhianna Firth knows what it takes to conquer fear. The Grade 6 student at Chief Julius School in Fort McPherson said once she finished reading a story live on the radio for the first time, she knew she could do it again. Building students' confidence is just one of the goals of a new local radio program school staff have helped launch this year, said vice principal Cliff Gregory.

John Luke, the brother of Mary Laboucan who was killed by her common law partner Stephen Sayine in 2012, felt like let was let down by the justice system after he was encouraged to apply for, then ultimately denied, funding intended to assist victims of crime. Luke hoped to use the funding to be reimbursed for travelling to Hay River so he could watch Sayine's trial in September. 'They told me I wasn't a victim'
The brother of a woman who was killed by her common law partner in Fort Resolution in 2012 feels like he was let down by the justice system after he was encouraged to apply for, then ultimately denied funding intended to assist victims of crime. For the past two and a half years, Yellowknife resident John Luke has been closely following the case against Stephen Sayine, who was recently convicted with manslaughter for delivering a kick to the head of his sister Mary Laboucan on June 16, 2012.

Dene games demonstrator James Williams holds the target for Leon Mangelana-Gruben as he practices his one-foot high kick during the Aboriginal Sports Circle of the NWT's traditional games clinic held in Tuktoyaktuk earlier this month.

Passing down the tradition
Students in Tuktoyaktuk and Fort Resolution were given an opportunity that many students in the south will never experience. The Aboriginal Sport Circle of the NWT traveled to the respective communities earlier in the month to lead workshops in traditional games.

Crafters claw at fur pelts
Crafters are getting their mitts on fur pelts with help from the Native Women's Association of the NWT. "We've been doing this for a while, but we've really stepped it up this fall," said Nola Nallugiak, executive director for the association. "We've created a space just to sell furs and fixed up the room really nice so people can come in and look at the furs easier."
