  • Sense of Place Projects – Tracy Burns, 18 years old (from Kaktovik), participated in the ShoreZone/Media Action film workshop this summer in Kaktovik on the North Slope. This ShoreZone cultural project aimed to document traditional knowledge of the coast by facilitating a film workshop with youth, in which they could interview elders about their knowledge of the coast and make movies to show their community. Tracy and Britany Burns’ movie called ‘Weather or Not’ was selected for the Snowdance category of the Anchorage Film Festival. For this film, they interviewed elders in the community about coastal change around their village. Thanks to the Arctic Slope Community Foundation, ExxonMobil, and the North Slope Borough for making the project ‘Sense of Place’ happen in beautiful Kaktovik. Check out videos produced by the students in Kaktovik and Kotzebue at the Vimeo Shorezone page.
