In 1999, to commemorate the division of the Northwest Territories and the establish of Nunavut, CBC North commissioned a song to be written. Dene singer Leela Gilday collaborated with Inuit rocker Lucie Idlout to write and perform a song to mark the historic event.
I produced a story for CBC North TV about how the song came together, and created a music video of the song that expresses the importance of the land to the northern people.
This clip explains a little of the process that went into the writing of the song. You can also watch the video I produced.
