This video documents the impact of climate change from an Inuit perspective. The residents of Sachs Harbour on Banks Island in Canada's High Arctic, have witnessed dramatic changes in their landscape and their way of life. Exotic insects, fish and birds have arrived; the sea ice is thinner and farther from the community, carrying with it the seals upon which the people depend for food; the permafrost is melting, causing the foundations of their community buildings to shift. In the fall, storms have become more frequent and severe, making boating difficult.
The video touches upon a number of themes included in the Science, Social Studies, Geography and Native Studies curriculum.
The video may be used to introduce these issues in the context of a case study that might be followed by more in-depth investigation.
