Exploring Herschel Island with Richard Gordon

Richard Gordon's genuine passion for Herschel Island comes through in his descriptions of the sights, sounds and smells (imagine those wildflowers in summer!) of this special place. That passion comes from both his personal experiences and his current professional role as the head park ranger of Herschel Island Territorial Park. The role that Herschel Island has played as Richard developed his sense of himself and of his Inuvialuit culture comes through beautifully. As a caretaker of sorts, Richard's recognition of the importance of Elders and their stories in keeping a culture alive for younger generations bodes well for the island's future. He also illustrates the importance of connecting with visitors, whether researchers or tourists, in expanding the knowledge base about the island. Each story and anecdote, he says, presents an educational opportunity, whether about ideal hunting times or growing information about specific plants. Richard's song "Kikkitaruq" ("Our Island") at the end of the podcast is a gentle tribute to a place where Richard lives part of the year but that resides year-round in his heart.
