Climate Change in the Arctic

Pitseolak Alainga is an Inuit, an aboriginal Canadian living in Iqaluit on Frobisher Bay. He's also a Canadian Ranger, responsible for patrolling the terrain he grew up on. While traveling the land and waters, he has started to see the effects of climate change. He traces his own sense of foreboding over the weather back to an incident which happened more than 15 years ago. A walrus hunt went wrong and 8 people drowned, including his own father.
