Interview with Jessica Starlund

This is an interview 14-year-old Noah Beaton and his 12-year-old brother Ezra recently completed with Gitxsan language teacher Jessica Starlund.

In the video, Starlund explains why she loves teaching the Gitxsan language to people from age 5 up to 13. She sums it up, “It makes me feel very proud.”

In Noah’s words: “Erza and I packed up the gear, and rode our bikes down. I did the editing on my iPad, with just a tiny bit of help.”
