Hockey in Juneau

In this  documentary, we interview residents of Juneau about their love for hockey. We chat with players of all backgrounds, asking them about their hockey journeys, from the duration of their play to their favorite and least favorite aspects of the sport. We also delve into why they joined the hockey league, their thoughts on the game’s intensity, and their most cherished hockey memories. Join us as we uncover the heartwarming tales of Juneau’s hockey enthusiasts.

Exploring Community and Place through Media Arts took place in the Spring of 2023 at Montessori Borealis Middle School in Juneau on the ancestral homeland of the Áak’w Kwáan and T’aaku Kwáan. Approximately thirty 7th to 8th grade students created films. Students reflected on the prompt of “What makes the Juneau community unique?” and explored topics ranging from important historical events of years’ past to community events taking place today. During this workshop students had the unique opportunity to work with archivists at the Alaska State Museum to find primary sources to better tell the stories they were investigating.
