    SYNOPSIS:

    Abandoned by her father, a White RCMP officer, Vivi Kunuk was adopted by the Inuk family of her mother who raised her as a boy. This is but one remarkable chapter in her life.

    With her husband Enuki, she raised eight children, including award-winning filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk, living most of the year on the land as her nomadic ancestors did prior to the creation of government settlements in the 1950's. Surrounded by her grandchildren, she recounts stories about the land she knows intimately and her life's destiny on Baffin Island.

    The history of changes experienced by Inuit people in the last sixty years is contained in the stories of Vivi Kunuk.

    Kingulliit: The Next Generation (Part 2)

    Kingulliit: The Next Generation (Part 2)

    Pingajugijat Kinguvaarijat: The Third Generation

    Part 2 of the Kingulliit documentary, by Zacharias Kunuk and Paul Aarulaaq Quassa.

    In the 1980’s and 90’s, as aging elders and Third Generation children become modern adults, southern radio and television introduced in 1982 increase the impact of foreign language and culture, and quickly alter the community dynamics of the settlement. Traditional respect for leadership by elders is undermined as Third Generation adults are prematurely empowered by new skills: the ability to speak, read and write English; to negotiate with white bosses and bureaucracies; to get jobs using new technology like trucks, heavy equipment, cash registers, typewriters, fax machines and computers.
