    ABOUT OUR BAFFINLAND

    The Arctic is warming double the global average, decreasing sea ice, making it easier to access and extract mineral and oil resources from the region, and this cumulative climatic and economic change has significant human and environmental health implications for Inuit and their communities. In Nunavut, the proposed Baffinland Iron Mine, at the site of Mary River, is one of the largest industrial developments ever conceived for the Arctic, and will involve year-round shipping of ore across sensitive permafrost, marine ecosystems and regions of cultural significance that have and continue to be used by Inuit. The Our Baffinland project explores Inuit knowledge regarding mining, and shows a walrus and caribou hunting expedition and associated interviews with elders across this landscape. This digital media presentation highlights the complexities of "Arctic Development".

This unforgettable film helps us to appreciate Inuit culture and expertise regarding environmental change and indigenous ways of adapting to it.

    Exploring centuries of Inuit knowledge, allowing the viewer to learn about climate change first-hand from Arctic residents themselves, the film portrays Inuit as experts regarding their land and wildlife and makes it clear that climate change is a human rights issue affecting this ingenious Indigenous culture. Hear stories about Arctic melting and how Inuit believe that human and animal intelligence are key to adaptability and survival in a warming world.

    Community-based screenings of the film are now being organized across Canada. Stay tuned for more information, new blog posts and videos added to this channel regularly.
