SHIFT is a short documentary about Indigenous youth from Carcross, Yukon who have spent the past 10 years converting their traditional trade route trails on Montana Mountain into a world-class mountain biking destination, and transforming their community and themselves along the way. A great uplifting story about healing, reconciliation, economics and community spirit.

The film presents a modern twist on integrating the Indigenous community with their tribal lands. Instead of hunting, fishing and trapping, they are building world class bike trails, which are successfully attracting adventure tourists. This is where healing begins with meaningful work, connection to their tribal lands, having fun with other young people and contributing to the economic development of the community.
