The Inuit Circumpolar Documentary

Posts tagged “6 long journeys



Nanoq is divided into 6 long journeys on the edge of the polar ice, starting in Thule in 2012 and ending in Alta, Norway in 2017. It is a tribute to the indigenous people of the Arctic and their intangible cultural heritage. The goal is to:

  1. Visit and link 100 schools in the Arctic together and through a series of public events raise awareness of intangible cultural heritage
  2. Document the contrasts in the social life, and sum up the prospects for cultural survival in Arctic villages
  3. Make people from all the villages sign a common statement towards politicians, scientists, environmentalists and corporate leaders who all share an interest in the Arctic
