"Arctic Defenders tells the remarkable story that began in 1968 with a radical Inuit movement in Canada. It led to the largest land claim in western civilization, orchestrated by young visionary Inuit with a dream - the governance of their territory - the creation of Nunavut. The story reveals the dark side of Canada’s attempt at sovereignty in the north and finds hope and inspiration from determined Inuit who changed the rules of the game. It's also an incredibly personal film, as it charts Walker’s return to the High Arctic which he first explored as a wide-eyed teenager"--From arcticdefenders.ca/film.html website.

"Arctic Defenders" Should be a must read for every senior high school student.
I consider myself a well informed 83 year old Canadian. This DVD proved my ignorance about the Inuit people. The Inuit people are incredible at adapting to being moved to an inhospitable
environment, surviving, thriving and challenging the Canadian government in recognizing them
as the independent people they are. My cap off to them.
I wonder how many of us, average Canadians, would have survived the treatment the Inuit people received, and are receiving, from our government.
