We’re losing language, we’re losing traditional ways, and the loss of a food, a cultural food, is just as high of an importance as language, as craft, and art, and all the rest of it.

As a research initiative, the HERD project has co-created knowledge with Inuit about their relationship with caribou in the context of the population declines and hunting ban. We conducted video interviews that were used not only for the creation of the documentary film, but also as a form of data that could be explored through an innovative analytical approach which combines documentary film and qualitative research. Through this process, we were able to co-create journal articles published on a range of social and health science topics, including identity and cultural continuity, social connections, ecological grief and mental health, Inuit involvement in wildlife management, and our visual methodology. Below you can read more about the research we have conducted.
