Gwich’in singer, songwriter and musician William Greenland played flute in the Centre Square Mall Upper Level on Tuesday.

Greenland was playing to support some of the events of the Naka Festival, which runs from Monday until Saturday.

Beside Greenland, the Tlicho Nation Mini-Theatre was showing four short films from local filmmakers: The Woman Who Came Back, Digawolf’s music videos, Three Feathers, and The Tlicho Nation: Tlicho Online Store.
