Lessons from the Dempster
Show Notes

Melanie Bennett grew up at Engineer Creek, 200 km up the Dempster Highway, when the road was being built. The surrounding wilderness was her playground and schoolroom. That upbringing helps her maintain "one foot on the land" in her role as an educator and executive director of the Yukon First Nation Education Directorate.
