We finished the edit on this short video this evening. It tells Johnny Kilabuk's "Hockey Season" story about climate change. This story shows that climate change is affecting Inuit of all ages and backgrounds. From traditional hunting to hockey, climate change is seriously affecting the lifeways of Arctic people.

This video was made by Christine Germano, Qajaaq Ellsworth, Stacey Algok MacDonald and Ian Mauro. Christine is a photographer and youth educator visiting Pang and working with the UNEP/GRID on a project called "Portraits of Resilience". Qajaaq, Stacey and I are here working on a youth-focused video project on climate change. Given our common interest, we decided to collaborate, and have been going into the local high school to encourage youth to write their stories about climate change. Once the stories are complete, we've been taking youth out into the community to take photos that represent their narrative. We've been documenting this process and interviewing each of the youth. As you'll see, parts of Johnny's text is edited with his interview and photos.

Please stay posted. We'll be uploading more youth videos throughout the week. On Monday, we'll be taking a group of youth "on the land" with a group of elders so they can share stories. On Tuesday, we'll be taking elders in the high school to teach youth about climate change. We'll be sharing more of this excellent footage soon!!!

      Polar Bears Cannot Be In Danger

      channel: Ian Mauro

      Inuit we've spoken with believe that nanuuit - polar bears - are increasing in abundance. The stories of elders clearly indicate that in the past this great animal was not seen often, but when it was, it was a very special event. In Inuit society, the bear is revered for its intelligence, strength and importance within the foodchain.… Read more

      Zach said to me this spring that "In my lifetime, I've gone from the stone age to the digital age". This is the video to prove it. See our crew in action as we coordinate our project between Winnipeg, a campsite miles outside of Igloolik, and Saudi Arabia using satellite and internet technology. Arguably this is the first indigenous broadcast from "the land" ever done.
