Ted Ackerman says for him, it is a two-way tutoring partnership. He says Smith has taught him about First Nations culture and the Southern Tutchone language. Together, they have preserved oral stories in the Southern Tutchone language, with the support of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation.

"Louie is highly literate in Yukon First Nation culture, so this is truly a ... marvellous learning opportunity for me," said Ackerman.

The two have become good friends over the past few years and continue to meet twice a week at the Kwanlin Dun First Nation Kenädän Ku House of Learning.
