After months of darkness, winter has finally come to an end, and the Sun beginning to light up the Yukon skies — and what better way to celebrate the change of the season than by honouring the Tlingit creation story of how a raven brought light to the world.

Tlingit artist Megan Jensen masterfully used over 15,000 snowshoe steps to create a beautiful image of a raven in the snow as part of a new short film for Yukon Tourism. Mia Gordon, a reporter with The Weather Network, recently had the chance to speak to Megan to find out more about the incredible project — her largest art installation to date.
