Our Health

{{cree_title}}

With times changing so quickly, what is happening to the health of our bodies and the land? For many of our People, yesterday feels quite far from today.

In this short, Inuit youth advocate Julia St-Aubin looks at what it means for her to be well today. She also asks Kangiqsualujjuaq Elder Sarah Pasha what it meant for her:

"Inuit were always moving in the past. They were dog sledding and hunting. They were always getting their wood and ice by dog sled. Their bodies were always moving... I hear some people say that if they did something physical they would be extremely tired because they haven't done anything in a while. Maybe they would but their body would get used to being active."

Julia St-Aubin is an Inuit youth advocate and hockey coach who loves to photograph, interview, and film the beautiful people around her in the North. She currently lives in her home community of Kangiqsualujjuaq, QC.
