About the project
A mining company proposes a railroad across Baffin Island to ship 30 million tons of iron ore annually by supertanker through walrus breeding grounds within view of Piugattuk’s former home site at Kapuivik. Isuma will webcast Silakut Live from the Floe Edge from May 8–11, 2019, consulting Igloolik hunting families on the impact and benefits of the iron mine’s proposed expansion. From September 16–21, Isuma will webcast Silakut Live from Pond Inlet, where public hearings will review the mining company’s Environmental Impact Statement. Silakut Live brings global media transparency to the consequences of forced relocation to viewers in Nunavut, Venice, Canada and worldwide.
