In April 2009, a group of Inuit youth from a high school in Cambridge Bay (Canada) were trained to undertake participatory video projects. In their first video 'Growing up in Cambridge Bay' you see how they contacted local elders to help them to document traditional food gathering practises such as fishing and hunting, local legends, but also typical Arctic sports and cultural traditions such as throat singing and drum dances. In the same video the community elders also discuss their perspectives on a rapidly changing future for the community and their way of life. In July 2009, the transmission of traditional knowledge from elders to youth continued when the when they started working on this video. For more information:
