ARVIAT, NUNAVUT (July 11, 2013) - Inuit youth in Arviat are participating in an innovative new community-based project that will help children, youth and their families.
The Unikkausivut: Sharing Our Stories film collection, a jointly funded program between the GN and the National Film Board, premiered in Iqaluit last November.
What happens when Inuit youth and their Elders combine traditional knowledge with new technologies? The shortest and best answer is "A whole lot of fun!"
This week, the Nanisiniq: Arviat History Project team started work converting and editing footage for their documentary film on Arviat history. In this latest video, our young Inuit researchers laughed it up with Arviat Elder Silas Illungiayuk, introducing him to the hilarious and wonderful experience of making funny faces with iPhoto.
