Ashley Makohoniuk has lived in Yellowknife for about 8 years and most of that time she has volunteered for Folk on the Rocks, the annual music and arts festival that takes place in July on the shores of Long Lake.
As part of a Yellowknife Online and Folk on the Rocks partnership, this is the first How To Be a Yellowknifer episode of three that focuses not on people who live in Yellowknife, but also on Folk on the Rocks festival and what it means to them.
Over those 8 years volunteering with Folk on the Rocks, Ashley has gone from Director-at-Large to current Folk on the Rocks President, gotten married, and had two beautiful children.
Throughout this episode, you will hear each of Ashley’s children make surprise cameos, all the while Ashley recounting what Folk on the Rocks and Yellowknife mean to her, and how she has adjusted to both now with two children.
If you have a young family and have wondered what Yellowknife or Folk on the Rocks is like with small children, this is the episode for you.
