Sense of Place Project: Inupiat Coastal Knowledge

Weather or Not is a short film about observations of coastal change around Kaktovik, a village located at the edge of Alaska in the Arctic. Tracy and Brittany Burns made this movie during a film workshop organized by ShoreZone and the non-profit Media Action. They flew around Kaktovik by helicopter to film the surroundings and interviewed two elders about their knowledge of the coast. Thanks to the Arctic Slope Community Foundation, Exxon Mobil, and the North Slope Borough for making this project possible!
