Sean's Class, Grade 11
At the High School, 11th grade teacher gave a class on climate change and screened 'Ukiutatuq Takuguk!' a video from the 'Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change' project within the Inuit Culture and Education area. The video was made for the United Nations COP-15 and was presented in Copenhagen at Denmark's National Gallery. The film features Sheila Watt-Cloutier giving her speech at the Lafontaine Baldwin Symposium held on spring 2009 in Iqaluit and footage from Pangnirtung, Resolute Bay and Igloolik. After watching the video students were given an ipod nano to interview people in the school about climate change through their own video cameras. Students were very interested in the content of the video and got exited about the possibility of watching more videos through IsumaTV/DIAMA and the Inuit Culture Education site at high speed.
