We Live in the Arctic, 1947
We Live in the Arctic, 1947 "The Kitikmeot Heritage Society was recently contacted by the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections and Archives with the University of Alaska Fairbanks and they have preserved and digitized a 1947 film titled, 'We Live in the Arctic'. Which includes some scenes from Canada around Paulatuk and with the RCMP were in Cambridge Bay, the power schooner Tudlik, and Inuit hunters cooking caribou meat over a fire (scenes from Canada begin at ~ 28-36 min).
The film was made by Alaskan homesteaders Bud and Connie Helmericks during a flight along the north coast of Alaska and into Canada. Restoration of the film was made possible though a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation."
