icture the Yukon Arts Centre, post Covid-19. The lights are low and the spotlight is on a harpist (perhaps Yukon’s gold medal winner, Emma Kaiser) playing just before the Whitehorse Community Choir starts to sing “We’ll Rise Again” behind her. Okay, it’s a little dramatic, but the music that comes from this gorgeous instrument is heavenly. That’s part of the reason the Yukon Harpists Society wants to buy a concert pedal harp that both senior harp students and visiting musicians can use. Something beautiful and lasting can come out of this pandemic. A pedal harp allows harpists to change keys (which happens a lot in modern music) with the foot, without having to stop the music. Typically, senior harp students can only progress past grade eight with the Royal Conservatory of Music by playing a pedal harp. Visiting orchestras or large musical ensembles do not travel with harps, so harps are typically provided by the local arts centre. The Yukon currently has roughly 50 harp students, with a waiting list for more, should instruments become available. One of the most sought-after classes at Music Camp 2019 - a non-profit event run out of Yukon college with the intent of improving the education of young Yukon musicians - was as the harp. A pedal harp is typically a very heavy instrument. It’s difficult to move around and store. The Yukon Harpists Society is looking to buy a graphite instrument with an electronic soundboard. This version weighs around 40
pounds, versus the 1,000-pound wooden instruments of the past. The Yukon Arts Centre (YAC) has agreed to store this beautiful harp and the Canadian
Sue Edelman is the president of the Yukon Harpist’s Society.

Just think of the FINE COCKTAILS you can create with the
Development Fund has provided money to develop a storage/ use plan. This work is currently underway. The instrument that the Society is looking to purchase is approximately $56,000. That price includes transportation and insurance to get it to Whitehorse. Other Yukon public instruments include the concert grand piano and the tympani at YAC, the upright grand at the Old Firehall, the piano at the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture, and the piano at St. Elias Convention Centre in Haines Junction. The fundraising to raise the required amount will take some basic seed money to print tickets for raffles and to pay for postage and office supplies. The $2,000 goal is to start putting away money for the deposit for the harp. It is our hope that every Yukoner will have the opportunity to invest in this lovely harp. The Yukon Harpists Society would be very grateful for your support. Visit GoFundMe. com and search “Yukon harp.”

What do we need to hold onto, or keep in these challenging times?
The Rider-Waite Coleman-Smith, first published in 1910.
Astrological Circumstances: I cast the reading during the Waxing Moon in Pisces, in a cloud of white sage with curious intentions. May it harm none.
Three of Pentacles of the Minor Arcana.
Taurus, Venus. Element: Earth. Direction: North
In the Three of Pentacles in the Rider-Waite Tarot deck, we see three figures inside a place of worship. One person has been building the sacred place, carving into stone to create beauty. The other figures are a monk and a wealthy patron, who present the worker with a reward for their skill and artistry.
We could talk about the number three (3) and sets of threes for a very long time. Humans clearly have a special connection with the number three and, in the Tarot, we see potent messages in
all threes (3s) in the deck. The Three of Pentacles is a stealth card. At first it seems easy to absorb the entire message, but there are multiple avenues of meaning to explore. Consider: art, craft, patronage, the value of doing good work and rewarding others for their good works, the politics of advancement, and what three (3) can mean for love. Also, the place of worship here is the site of good works. What happens when we work with and for divinity, or for something larger than ourselves? The Three of Pentacles also reminds us to keep honesty and integrity, not just in work, but in love too. Love triangles, affairs, and multiple partners can be indicated by the Three of Coins. Fledgling Tarot readers, please note this is not always the case! Please don’t immediately assume you are in a love triangle, or that your partner is having an affair each time you see the Three of Pentacles.
To be rewarded, act in ways worthy of recognition! Hold onto and keep the desire and ability to do good work. Keep the ability to hold one another up, to see and reward good works. Continue to be patrons and creators, to hon-

he Tarot continues to fascinate and amaze. Sometimes we ask a big question, and brace ourselves for a challenging or lofty answer, yet the advice given feels surprisingly achievable. Often, when I cast a collective reading, I expect a Major Arcana card—these express major life themes, major changes, major stuff. In the Major Arcana, cards zero to 22, we encounter archetypes of growth through the life cycle. The most ancient of human symbols are the backbone of the Major Arcana. For example, The Sun, The Moon, The Devil, The Lovers. Sometimes it’s comforting when, instead, a “pip” (a.k.a. Minor Arcana card) arrives. Often, with Minor Arcana cards, we can incorporate the advice a little quicker and learn the lessons on a more human scale. The pips are structured like playing cards. There are four suits, including Wands, Pentacles, Swords, and Cups, and four elements, including Fire, Earth, Air, Water. Both run from Aces to Queens and Kings. The Minor Arcana is crucial to the Tarot deck, as all 78 cards work together to deliver the messages of the deck. There is no hierarchy of the cards in their potential to bring us relief and positive change.

Viewing Stones It’s all about suggestion
by Hugh Copland
Part Two Backyard GeoloIf you are looking for your own viewing stone, the best rocks tend to be those that erode into interesting shapes. Limestone is a favorite as the calcium that makes up the rock dissolves relatively easily when exposed to water. Dolostone is related to limestone, except it has less soluble magnesium replacing the calcium.

ther types of stone that have been traditionally used include: soapstone, marble, quartz, serpentinite, and jade. Any type of rock can weather to an interesting shape. Most important is the environment in which it is found. Rocks in rivers and streams are constantly being abraded by water and other stones. Those found along lakes and seashores are pounded by waves. Some rocks in dry desert areas are sculpted by windblown sand, these are called ventifacts. The indigenous peoples of North America practiced stone appreciation less as an art, more as a spiritual way of life. Beliefs were that everything started as a spirit and that all land started from one grandfather rock rising out of the endless ocean. Then as the land grew the spirits moved around looking for a favoured place to stay. The Stó:lō people of the Fraser River in British Columbia believe their ancestors were transformed to stone. Dozens of sites along the Fraser canyon are said to contain living spirits. If you have walked around the seawall in Vancouver’s Stanley Park you have seen
Chrysanthemum rock, celestite crystals PHOTO: Hugh Copland Slhx�i7lsh Rock. A Squamish Nation legend is that a warrior changed to stone here to ensure his child’s future. New rocks used in sweat lodge ceremonies are said to be full of spirits. When they are heated and water poured over them in the lodge the spirits are released. Stones are replaced after a number of uses to ensure fresh and abundant spirits. Stone gatherers are able to hear the best rocks call out to them. They always leave some sort of an offering at the spot they collect a stone from. There are lots of places in the Yukon to connect with your own special stone. Any river or fast stream will give you nice rounded smooth textures. If you want more delicate shapes look near the source of the rock, like talus slopes along mountainsides. Choose areas where limestone or dolostone are found. Dolostone does not dissolve as easily as limestone and can form more sharply defined shapes. Grey Mountain is easily accessible from Whitehorse. There are many other small pockets of limestone throughout the southern Yukon. The largest accumulations of carbonates are to the north and east in the territory. Go up the Dempster Highway into the
Ogilvie, Richardson and Wernecke Mountains to the north. Travelling east of Watson Lake down the Alaska Highway will bring you to abundant limestone and dolostone in the Northern Rocky Mountains. When searching for your own special stone think of the words of Chinese poet Bai Juki (772-846AD) Each man has his own preferences: All things seek their own companions. I have come to fear that the world of youth Has no room for one with long white hair. I turn my head and ask this pair of stones: “Can you be companions for an old man?” Although the stones cannot speak, They agree that we three shall be friends.

Allan Code directed Pandemic at the End of the World in order to bring a historical perspective to the current global reality PHOTO: Allan Code
What can past pandemics tell us today? by Amber Church
n March, Allan Code was filming the caribou migration in Tadoule Lake on Hudson Bay. When COVID struck, he had to abandon the partially completed project and drive back across Canada to the Yukon. As he did, the country shut down, doors closing all along
the highways. In isolation after returning, Code started thinking about how the inequality and poverty were going to play into pandemic. “If you start thinking about the lack of ventilators and respirators in small northern commun-
ities, or about the crowded conditions that many live in in these areas, you start to see the potential of how catastrophic COVID could be in the North,” said Code. “When you couple that to a lack of understanding in the science and the flood of misinformation that is circulating, the consequences could be dire.” Code also knew that pandemics had impacted the North before and that there were meaningful lessons to be learned from that history. The short film he started after his return to the Yukon, Pandemic at the End of the World, was made to bring those lessons to the fore for a new global generation. “This film is a warning from history,” he said. In 2015, Code had the opportunity to visit the ancient Inuvialuit site of Kitigaaruk, a community abandoned after the great flu epidemic of 1918. He went there with historian Randal Pokiak. Pokiak spoke about the Inuvialuit’s experiences in the early 19th century when John Franklin and his crew infected their communities with deadly smallpox. Other devastating epidemics would follow, including that of 1918.
“When you are engaged with such a powerful individual, who is so articulate, all you have to do is stay out of his way and then work to amplify the message that he gives to you,” Code said of working with Pokiak. “During the Spanish flu, there were Dene and Inuit communities who didn’t have enough survivors to bury the dead,” Code said. “Randal talked about how the elders advised those that were still healthy to just walk away and to not even say goodbye to their loved ones. That’s how grim it was.” Code said the film is quite different from his previous work. He called it “more old-fashioned” and said its purpose is to perform a public service. He wanted it to have a clear, emotional message. When Code approached Pokiak earlier this year with the idea for a film that would tie together some of their previous work with the current global pandemic, Pokiak was very enthusiastic. “He told me, ‘by all means, get it out as quickly as possible, people are forgetting in our communities,’” Code said. Code then reached out to David Stewart, who shot a Tuktoyaktukbased interview with Pokiak. Code said Pokiak’s common-sense message touched on following directives for isolation and quarantine. “He believed that his people would rise up and dig deep to keep the most vulnerable members of their communities safe, especially the elders. He delivered an ap-

peal to people to understand the extreme threat that COVID brings and challenged them to be ready to come up with creative solutions that fit their community situation.” Sadly, Pokiak passed away shortly before the film could be completed, but his message lives on in the film. Code said they set out to create a film that can speak to everyone in a way politicians and governments can’t. He didn’t want political baggage, just a direct message. “Randal was able to give us that gift. He’s able to speak to everyone. Whether you’re from New York, Siberia, the Amazon or northern Canada, you will be able to connect with his message. He spoke passionately from the heart about what history has to teach us all about pandemic disease. It’s a lesson we all need to hear.” Pandemic at the End of the World can be viewed for free through the National Film Board of Canada’s site, which features social distance stories that aim to bring us all closer together.

Seasonal Recipes with Sydney Keddy
Linguine with herb battuto
attuto is one of the foundations of Italian food, a bit like a mirepoix or a soffrito. This version is a play on a classic Italian sauce (called battutto di erbe) and is similar to pesto. I’ve omitted the cheese and the nuts and focused on fresh herbs and a bit of garlic. Toss this clean pasta with more arugula for a light meal, or bulk it up with some simple grilled meat or fish. Serves 2
❑ 5 garlic cloves, halved ❑ 1 tbsp chopped rosemary ❑ 1 tbsp chopped sage ❑ 1 tbsp chopped oregano
Don’t worry about chopping them too finely, the whole sauce gets run through a food processor
❑ 1/2 cup olive oil ❑ 1/2 cup chopped ﬂat-leaf parsley ❑ 1 cup arugula, plus extra for PHOTOS: Sydney Keddy
❑ Salt and pepper, to taste ❑ 250 grams linguine
Gently cooked in olive oil cont’d on page 9 ...

Linguine with herb battuto ... cont’d METHOD
Place garlic, rosemary, sage and oregano into a pot and cover with olive oil. Place over medium heat and cook until garlic is soft and just beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Place oil and herbs into a food processor or blender with parsley and arugula. Process until the sauce is smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
3 Sauce the noodles
Cook pasta according to package directions and reserve 1 cup of cooking liquid. Drain and toss with batutto, loosening with reserved pasta water if necessary. Adjust seasoning if necessary and garnish with additional arugula.

From the Arts with Nicole Bauberger
The owl that beckons
Owls, ravens and wolves cavort in Life and Legacy, a retrospective of work by Kenojuak Ashevak, on display at the ODD Gallery until Dec.10.
f you have lived in Canada for any time, you will likely recognize her work, even if you weren’t sure how to say her name. Kenojuak Ashevak’s image, “Owl’s Bouquet,” is featured on Canada’s $10 bill. Her iconic “The Enchanted Owl” was featured on a stamp in 1970. She was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and received the Order of Canada. Her images have been part of the story of Canadian identity for a long time. Ashevak was one of the founding members of the West Baffin
Eskimo Cooperative in 1959. Her drawings were some of the first that were carved into the local stone by other members of the cooperative and printed in numbered series. The Cooperative sells members’ work to galleries in the south, and organizes shared purchase of fuel oil and other commodities. Life and Legacy, a retrospective at Dawson City’s ODD Gallery, was organized in Kinngait, formerly known as Cape Dorset, in cooperation between the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, the
Kenojuak Cultural Centre and the Kinngait Arts Foundation. It includes 31 drawings and three prints, drawing from Ashevak’s later production, from 1994 until her death in 2013. Tara Rudnickas, director of the ODD Gallery, says that they were surprised when the organizers approached them with the show, but figured they wanted to exhibit in other northern communities. The smallish ODD Gallery can only exhibit about half the work. A live video visit with members of the Kinngait community is planned for
sometime this fall. Ashevak is one of the elder artists whose conversations Shuvinai Ashoona would have been listening to as she drew. Ashoona, also a member of the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, exhibited Mapping Worlds at the Yukon Arts Centre this fall. Both Ashevak and Ashoona create large, fully committed drawings in coloured pencil and felt tip pen. These are not media that we usually see in works this large. It’s interesting to see the time and commitment expressed in the
strokes of these humble drawing materials. Ashevak, in particular, masters a kind of patterning with black coloured pencil that works as a kind of cross-hatching, but with a rounder and more random application. This translates flat areas into something that feels a lot more like stone carving. There is a National Film Board video about Ashevak that likens her shape-based drawings to shadows made by the light of the qulliq, the Inuit oil lamp, or to shadows on the snow. In the catalogue that accompanies the show, which you can buy from the gallery, the point is made that some of Ashevak’s design strategies, including her symmetries, are influenced by sewing patterns drawn by other women in her culture. Ahsevak’s work abstracts animals, adding long fingerlike protrusions. These often proliferate past our ability to easily count them, communicating both movement and power. Her owls hold court with other birds. Her longfingered wolves gather with other animals, or seem to wear a striped serpentine sock. Her compositions reward close observation. It is curious that in times of COVID, when we cannot easily travel to see other exhibits in the south, Kinngait, remote at the best of times, has so generously come to us here in the Yukon.
ODD Gallery director Tara Rudnickas shares her office with the orange crates containing about half again as many of Ashevak’s drawings as the small gallery is able to display

FRESH. FAST. DELICIOUS
The owl that beckons... cont’d I am the kind of person who would travel a long way to see an art show by an artist I admire. Kathe Kollwitz and Rita Letendre have motivated trips south for me in the past. There is an exhibition of paintings by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian Baroque painter, currently on display in London, England, that I am very sorry to miss. In consequence, I treasure the opportunity to get to know
Ashevak’s work better and invested my art viewing travel inYukon. I stayed with a friend at Bombay Peggy’s, right across from the gallery. We had the hotel to ourselves on the Friday night. Whitehorse readers, I invite you to consider a gallery viewing trip to Dawson City. It’s not like you will be flying anywhere else. Ashevak’s owls invite you to fly into your own imagination with her. It might be just the trip you need.

December 12, 2020 The holiday season is quickly approaching, and things are going to be different for many of us due to social distancing and travel restrictions. The Yukon Hospital Foundation has been reimagining the Northwestel Festival of Trees for 2020. Our regular in-person events will be moving online and on Community TV for the Home for the Holidays Gala – on December 12. Our silent auction and tree-mendous Christmas trees will be featured in an online auction. The trees will be displayed in various windows in downtown Whitehorse. Nuway Crushing and Meadow Lakes Golf Club approached us this year to create a beautiful outdoor activity – featuring over 55,000 holiday lights. The golf course will be lit up for walking tours from November 26 – December 11. Santa is planning to drop by to see the kids! Funds raised this year will support the Pediatrics department at Whitehorse General Hospital. The goal is to raise $350,000 by spring of 2021 for Extraordinary Together: A Campaign for our Littlest Yukoners. Our plan is to create a new space on the Maternity ward where sick infants can receive lifesaving care next to their mothers. The room will be equipped with the technology needed to stabilize and support sick babies and will be large enough to allow moms to receive their medical care next to their baby

Gather with Michele Geneste
Morels and rascals
PHOTO: Michele Geneste
At the picking camp
y father had a favourite expression when he came home from work late because he’d stayed downtown for a drink with his friends. “I fell among thieves,” he would tell my mother. I thought of his expression last summer on a morel mushroom picking expedition, when I fell among rascals. The first rascal showed up in our camp the moment we’d finished putting up the tents. He was sweaty, filthy with smoke and grime, and clearly checking us out. He was a professional picker, and the leader of the pack of rascals camped a few hundred metres away. We told him we were not pros, but picking for our household alone. He must’ve decided we were okay because he came back
a few minutes later with fresh morels for our supper and an offer: if we liked, he would take us picking with the crew tomorrow. In the cutthroat world of morel picking, this was incredibly generous, so we jumped on it. We roamed with the crew on a sunny hillside where the burn blended into intact forest. We picked many kilos, more than enough for our house for a year. Two of our friends showed up at dinnertime and, the next day, the chief rascal did the same favour for them. In turn, when they’d finished picking for themselves, they picked for the crew. Back in camp, we rotated the crew’s mushrooms on their makeshift drying racks and kept an eye on their stuff. That day the chief rascal made an excellent sale. A local driver
came to take 200 kilos of fresh morels to the airport. At three in the morning, our camp woke up to the crackle and pop of rifle shots, many rounds of rifle shots. We thought, bear? No, celebration. A good sale. We tried to comfort our dog, who was shaking uncontrollably. The next morning, some of us were pretty mad. Me included. But then I remembered another thing my father had said once, about me, when I behaved badly. “That’s her dark side,” he told my brother, whom I’d injured by staying up all night in the kitchen drinking and singing with my friends, right underneath his bedroom, the night before his important ski race. “If you love Michie, you have to love her dark side.” cont’d on page 14 ...

So we forgave the rascals for their unruly behaviour. We think about them, with wry gratitude, every time we dig into a plateful of the morels they helped us find.
Stuffed Morel Mushrooms in Cream Sauce Filling There will be some filling leftover for other dishes—pasta would be amazing, or small tarts or empanadas made with a cream cheese pastry. You could also just stuff more mushrooms! Ingredients • 1 cup diced onion • 2 cloves garlic, minced • 1 tbsp olive oil • 1 tbsp butter • 10 to 12 dried medium-sized morels • 1 lb ground pork • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs (if needed) • 1 tsp grated nutmeg • 1 tsp dried chillies • 1/4 cup white wine • 1/4 cup heavy cream • Salt and pepper to taste • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
• 12 large dried morels for stuffing Sauce ingredients • 2 tbsp butter • 1 cup white wine • 1 cup heavy cream • Dash soya sauce or Bragg’s Instructions In separate bowls, soak the medium and large morels in hot water to cover for 30 minutes. Remove morels from the water, squeezing to extract all the liquid. Reserve 1 cup soaking water, refrigerating the rest for stock or soup. Roughly chop the mediumsized mushrooms. Leave the large ones whole, but slice off enough of the stem to give you good access to the interior. Chop the stems and add to the other chopped mushrooms. Sauté onion in oil and butter over medium heat until soft— about 5 minutes. Add garlic and chopped morels. Cook for a further 3 to 4 minutes. Add 1 cup soaking liquid and simmer until all the liquid has evaporated. Add pork and cook until browned, breaking up clumps with a fork. Stir in nutmeg and chillies. If the pork is fatty (never a bad
thing), add breadcrumbs as necessary to absorb the fat. Add white wine and cook until fully absorbed, then add cream and cook until thick. Stir in salt and pepper to taste. Stir in grated parmesan. Let cool for about 15 minutes. Using a teaspoon, spoon filling lightly into each mushroom, filling it to the brim but not stuffing so hard the mushroom breaks. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. When sizzling, add the stuffed mushrooms. Sauté on each side just until browned, then pour in wine, cream and soya sauce or Bragg’s. Simmer until sauce has thickened to the consistency of a béchamel. Serve immediately over pasta or rice with more Parmesan over top. Makes enough for 2 generous or 4 moderate servings.

The Bookshelf with Dan Davidson
Jack London imagined a virus The Scarlet Plague by Jack London illustrated by Gordon Grant
PHOTO: Submitted by Dan Davidson
77 pages Kindle Edition $2.99
There are at least 20 different editions of this novelette, which London wrote in 1910. It was published in London Magazine in 1912 and It follows a format Shelley’s The Last Man (1826) and Edgar Allen Poe’s “Masque of the Red Death” (1842). It seems probable that the latter story might have inspired London, as the Shelley book, having been panned by critics at the time, was less likely to have been at the library that London frequented as a boy.

The cover of the original book version
hat’s of particular interest to readers in this year of the COVID-19 pandemic, is that London managed to predict the spread of a virulent disease three years before the so-called Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. Interestingly, this flu was first identified in the United States and only became associated with Spain due to wartime censorship among the allied nations. Over the course of two years, it killed between 17 million and 50 million people worldwide. It could be seen as the first major outbreak in which extensive international travel was a factor in the spread of the disease. One hopes it will continue to be the worst example of its type. London’s story is also somewhat akin to Stephen King’s The Stand, in that the disease has a sudden onset and wipes out most of humanity. In The Scarlet Plague, the reader meets four individuals in the year 2073 (as far as they know). The very elderly James Howard Smith, known to his three grandchildren as Granser, explains that the plague came
60 years earlier in the San Francisco area where they still live in the wild. It killed within hours of infection. Victims turned red in the face and lost the feeling in their extremities. Very few were immune, though it seemed the descendants of survivors inherited this immunity. Smith was a professor of English Literature and decries the decline in language skills just two generations past the peak of civilization as he knew it. His frustration is clear as he tries to explain the origins of the present world to Edwin, Hoo-Hoo and Hare-Lip. They, in turn, are constantly baffled as he uses words and concepts for which they, as hunter-gathererherders, have no context. Granser explains how the disease arrived, how the world order fell apart and how he survived in spite of the deaths of every one of the 400+ people from the campus who tried to get away from what they thought was the epicentre of the outbreak. Many months later, Granser found a tribe of fellow survivors — cont’d on page 19 ...

Jack London imagined a virus ... continued from page 17 already sunk back to the rule of the strongest and most violent— and was forced to make his peace with the end of the world as he had known it. And yet he is not fully adjusted. In a secret cave he has, over the years, hidden a library of what he
once hoped would be useful books for the rebuilding of civilization. As the story progresses, the reader realizes this cache will be useless in the future, as the boys Granser is trying to teach can make no sense of the strange markings on paper. It’s not a happy story, but
it seems appropriate for this year. Dan Davidson has been writing about books for Yukon publications since 1977. Please send comments about his stories to email@example.com.
