Whitehorse Rapids

My movie is about the history of the Whitehorse Rapids and the stampeders going to Dawson City.





What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned that in 1958 the hydro was built I did not know that before.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned Norman Macaulay started the Whitehorse tramway that the stampeders used.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

My life is very different from the lives of the stampeders, because the stampeders had no technology, and when they were making there way to Dawson they had no way to connect with the outside world but, I have access to technology.
