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.
