Here's our new project video trailer. It's a short summary of some of the incredible stories we've been hearing over our past month of filming in Pangnirtung, Resolute Bay and Iqaluit.

Over the next couple of months, we'll be working through the footage, and will be posting full interviews and edited thematic videos here on our project website for you to enjoy. Please stay tuned - we promise to bring you some of the most compelling Inuit-focused climate change discussion available.

Our crew will be meeting Zacharias in his home community of Igloolik in August to continue shooting. In September, we'll be heading to Arviat, the most southern Inuit community in Nunavut, and that will complete our Canadian shoot.

We've been invited by the United Nations to present our video work at the upcoming Copenhagen climate change negotiations, and we'll be heading there in December to document and present. So, over the next year, we'll have some amazing footage to share with you as the project unfolds.

Importantly, we want to engage and interact with you, so please connect with us here on IsumaTV. Write comments, post videos, or comment directly by video blogging from your computer. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me directly: ianmauro [at] uvic [dot] ca

All the best from our crew. Take care.

Ian and all, Wonderful to see and hear the elders speak. Thanks for bringing us their voices, landscape and ideas. We've just finished the first stage of a Metis elders interview process here - not so much about climate change, but about earth based lifestyle. Some dominant themes coming out are: "We all hunted, fished, trapped, gathered berries, canned and grew big gardens. There was very little illness and little need for government relief." I believe the messages you are gathering about climate change are directly linked to the messages we (and you, likely) are hearing about lifestyle. It was good to see Lisa's (from Australia) comment. Our family was just there for a brief visit as you know. While there I picked up a copy of the Pacific Ecologist. I was impressed with an article there on the inherent wealth of folks living close to the earth. Please see http://www.pacificecologist.org/archive/18/pe18-hunter-gatherers.pdf when you have a spare minute. Hi to Nath and Nuna. Love from us all. David and Maggie

Thanks Lisa - we appreciate your feedback and support. Indeed, this work is important for the Arctic, and all regions of the world. As you know, Australia has been hurting from cilmate change, especially due to drought, and the stories we're hearing are interconnected with the experiences of many. We are a global community and this issue affects us all.
