The Woman

Joella has worked to make ysc a community-building, language-learning, earth-connecting hub in the heart of the Yukon—the small town of Mayo.

When she took on the company, Joella was looking for a way to connect people to culture and to land. And she has done just that—from getting elders and local kids out on the land to gather wild botanicals, to employing youth in her workshop, to offering crafting workshops, and participating in farmer’s markets across the Yukon.
