Surrounded by dramatic signs of climate change, the residents of Sachs Harbor in the Northwest Territories wanted to document these changes from their perspective.
Led by Rosemarie Kuptana, a Sachs Harbor resident, the Inuit community initiated a two-year project to document their observations. Among the project outcomes was the video, Sila Alangotok-Inuit Observations on Climate Change. (In the language of the Inuit, “sila” means climate and all things that surround us.) The 42-minute video has been broadcast (in whole or in part) on 14 major television networks.
