Growing Up In Cambridge Bay


Conversations With The Earth

Uploaded on Dec 8, 2010

‘Growing Up in Cambridge Bay’ charts the experiences and lives of local youth in Cambridge Bay in the Arctic Circle. They document traditional fishing, hunting, Arctic sports, local legends on the origin of death and musical traditions such as throat singing.

Community elders from Cambridge Bay also perform drum dances and discuss their perspectives on a rapidly changing future for the community and their way of life. Their next video documents building a traditional kayak alongside their elders.

This film was made during a Participatory Video project undertaken by InsightShare as part of Conversations with the Earth (CWE) – a partnership through which InsightShare works with Indigenous communities to identify, train, and equip local videographers to enable them to record the impacts of, and responses to, climate change at the local level. Creating and sharing these video stories enables Indigenous peoples to contemplate and present their own perspectives on the effects of climate change to inform the global discourse. This has also created an opportunity to share local adaptation strategies and build donor support for community-based adaptation. Indigenous videographers are training people from other communities, helping to create a regional and a global network of Indigenous communities working on these issues. Communities participating in CWE are creating their own media and linking up through the emerging media hub network.

Facilitated by InsightShare, May 2009

The Big Picture RT

Published on Sep 11, 2014

John Wellington Ennis, Pay 2 Play, joins Thom Hartmann. Director John Ennis looks upon our Monopoly-inspired system of government, and identifies how money in politics is the obstacle to any meaningful change. Studying the outlandish Coingate scandal in Ohio, Ennis grasps that the primary function of pay-to-play politics is to repay the donor with public money—way more money than donors put in.
