Through these eyes

1) What do you feel is the main theme of this documentary?

I feel the main theme is about education on how to teach American students on how the culture was a long time ago. How they use to live out on the land and what they ate for breakfast, lunch and supper.

2) Do you feel a connection to the characters depicted in the film? Why?

I felt a connection to Sideonie, because of how everything was changing so quickly for her in our culture. Back then we still had a lot of elders who were still around  speaking our language and had a strong traditional ways of living. But for me, I feel that our language and culture is losing because we don’t really see or hear alot about our language or cultural. That is my opinion or thought.  

3) Being ‘caught between two worlds’ is a common theme when discussing Nunavut and the loss of traditional culture. Please reflect on this.

A lot has change for elders for sure. Especially with our language on how to communicate with them. How the culture was and looking at it now. I’m sure there are a lot of changes for elders and students back then who are now grand parents.
