The Inuit; In the Flesh

This first video is a recap of the photographer Matthieu Paley as he lives among the Inuit in South Greenland for a period of time. He describes their lifestyle and primarily their eating habits during the video. The video was uploaded May 26, 2015, so it is fairly recent. The uploader of the video is National Geographic (verified) , so obviously the level of intent and quality is more than adequate. The purpose of the video is to bring a more than isolated and quite group of people to the spotlight, using the subjects of food and photography. The video has a Standard YouTube License.

The second video is a multi-perspective “trailer” of what Gjoa Haven, Canada is like in terms of Inuit culture and influence. The video was uploaded Jan 29, 2010 so it is a little less recent, but likely still applicable. The uploader of this video is CANADA Explore, and although I have not heard of this channel before, the video contains interview material from the likes of Shoshanah Jacobs, a professor at the University of Guelph, and Jason Annahatak, the director of Post-Secondary student services on the Kativik School Board so it is at the very least collaborated in part by qualified individuals. The purpose of the video was to demonstrate the ways in which Inuit culture has been almost rediscovered with the surge in tourism. The video has a Standard YouTube License.
