This online film program brought together Hesquiaht youth to learn filmmaking skills and produce short films focused around traditional language sharing.

ḥaḥuupač̓akukqin is Hesquiaht for “our teachings informed by knowledge holders." The youth received ḥaḥuupa “informed teachings” from Elders, and became ḥaḥuupčuu “well-taught.

‘Son of Raven’ is a professionally-produced series of films in Hesquiaht, featuring the trickster, Raven, with a modern twist.

In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world—a just humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled or silenced because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability. We believe in the power of storytelling to make connections across difference.
