Happening to Us - Tuktoyaktuk Youth Filmmakers Heading to United Nations!
Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories is a community high in the Canadian Arctic, situated on the shores of the Beaufort Sea. Five young Indigenous filmmakers wanted to do something to show their concern with how climate change is affecting the world around them. They directed and filmed a documentary called, "Happening to Us." The film has garnered international attention and the youth have been invited to present it at a United Nations convention in Chile this December 2019. This episode of Arctic Canada-The Culture Cure features an interview with one of these youth, Eriel Lugt, and examines climate change through the eyes of Indigenous youth in the Arctic.
