Green Documentaries: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change

Nunavut-based director Zacharias Kunuk and researcher and filmmaker Dr. Ian Mauro have teamed up with Inuit communities to document their knowledge and experience regarding climate change. This 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.

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.

“If we think small, our actions will be small, like decisions made by children. But now, our world has to think like adults. We must act more intelligently. Our world leaders must do the same.” – Many Simon (National Inuit Leader)

“I want other cultures to realize how this affects us deeply. Although our elders will pass on, younger generations will inherit the future. We must ocnitnue to have healthy food from the land: seal, caribou and fish. These animals must be part of our lives. This food must be healthy and edible without worry.” – Miaili-Elise Coley (Iqaluit)

Knowledge is Power.
Please, share this knowledge 🙂
