Iñupiat Elders share their knowledge about the environment, whaling, and sea ice. Life long residents of Barrow, Alaska, these Elders have insight and perspective to cultural change and environmental shift unique to the world. Elders' recollections are illustrated with animations by Miho Aoki, and archival footage from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Rasmuson Library. All videos filmed by University of Alaska students, and edited by Tyson Hansen and Maya Salganek.

Designed as a video for middle to high school age students, lesson plans are available on request.
