Based on a polar bear legend, Shaman recounts the story of a polar bear that’s transformed into an iconic mountain in the community of Nain, Labrador.


Echo Henoche (Nunatsiavut Inuk) grew up in Nain and is the granddaughter of accomplished stone sculptor Gilbert Hays. Intent on becoming an artist from a young age, she sold her first piece of art when she was eight years old. This is Echo’s first animated short.
