Amplifying Inuit Voices
HERD: Inuit Voices on Caribou, tells the story of Inuit connections with caribou in the Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut regions of Labrador, Canada. Through Inuit leadership, we are using visual media as a way to document, analyze, and share Inuit voices with caribou so that this information can be preserved for future generations. So far, 85 Inuit from 11 communities have taken part in this work. This project stands as an emotional, audio-visual, qualitative repository that highlights Inuit feelings and experiences of loss and distress associated with caribou declines; shares outlooks and actions of strength, hope, and resilience; and illustrates the need for Inuit leadership and guidance in caribou conservation and management.
