Watch People of a Feather

Watch People of a Feather

Inspired by Inuit ingenuity and the technology of a simple feather, 2011’s seminal documentary film juxtaposes traditional and modern life as Inuit from Sanikiluaq, Nunavut confront changing sea ice conditions and acts as the Arctic Eider Society’s origin story. Learn more about People of a Feather.
