Video: How Inuit knowledge is informing climate research in Canada
Radio Canada International’s Eye on the Arctic recently worked this fall with our colleagues at the science show Découverte for an episode exploring science in the Arctic.

Here’s the Cree-language version, one of the Indigenous languages of Canada, with English subtitles, that aired on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation show Maamuitaau on CBC North and CBC Montreal this month.
