Russell Atagootak was our Inuit guide on the Arctic expedition I have just returned from.
I was really interested to spend time with him to try to work out how a small ethnic group fits into modern Canada. The trite yet apt conundrum faced by people of the far north is that they are torn between the igloo and the internet.
Russell was born and bred in the Arctic. All his friends and family are there. He was desperate to save up for an iPhone and he dreamed of taking a big road trip.
Listen to what he had to say about the Arctic and about life.
Apologies for the poor audio quality - it was hard to get things perfect up in the Arctic.
