Local indigenous comic artist and Cloudscape contributor Cole Pauls will have his debut graphic novel coming out from Conundrum Press: Dakwäkãda Warriors
As a young person growing up in Haines Junction YT, artist Cole Pauls performed in a traditional song and dance group called the Dakwäkãda Dancers. During that time, Pauls encountered the ancestral language of Southern Tutchone. Driven by a desire to help revitalize the language, he created Dakwäkãda Warriors, a bilingual comic about two earth protectors saving the world from evil pioneers and cyborg sasquatches.
The graphic novel will be published this November. To learn more, read Going to Print: Dakwäkãda Warriors on the Conundrum Press website.
