Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change

Zacharias Kunuk & Ian Mauro / CA / 2010 / 60 ‘ / Inuktitut / S.T. English

Inuit culture and expertise regarding environmental change and indigenous ways of adapting to it.


Nunavut-based director Zacharias Kunuk (Atanarjuat The Fast Runner) and researcher and filmmaker Dr. Ian Mauro (Seeds of Change) have teamed up with Inuit communities to document their knowledge and experience regarding climate change. This new documentary, the world’s first Inuktitut language film on the topic, takes the viewer “on the land” with elders and hunters to explore the social and ecological impacts of a warming Arctic.
