Når der er snestorm, og huset bliver dækket af sne, er det med at få det bedste ud af det.
Her har min geniale veninde og hendes kollega åbnet vinduet og sat lys i sneen! 👍😂

Die indianische Singer & Songschreiberin Raye Zaragoza aus Los Angeles mit Wurzel bei den Pima & Akimel O‘odham und mexikanischen und taiwanischen Wurzeln, war gestern ebenfalls beim Nordamerika Filmfestival zu Gast. Sie wurde von Good Shield Aguilar (rechts im Bild) begleitet. Er hat seine Wurzeln bei den Oglalla-Lakota und den Pascua-Yaqui. Raye ist im Mai und Juni 2018 auf Europa-Tournee. #filmfestival#nordamerika#inuit#indianer#unicef#rayezaragoza @rayezmusic
Jacob, before tea. Each morning he wakes early and crawls from his sleeping bag and tugs on tall rubber boots. There is a whisper of gas as he starts the stove, a thump from the rising flame. Then a struggle as he works the ice-clotted zipper in the tent’s door. Outside, in darkness, he chips ice from the lake and gathers it into a great soot-blackened kettle, which he carries back and sets on the stove. He sits in silence as it steams, staring into the flame. These are the day’s first rhythms. They reassure us and shape the world to come. I have tried to help, clumsily and slowly, but always Jacob shoos me away like a grandfather who knows his gift is time. He is 75, the oldest man among us and by far the strongest, hunting alone every day but Sunday, church day. He was born in an igloo, in a wilderness so vast that today it remains wilderness, and while he knows a bit of English he prefers using those words to make jokes. So whatever is serious, whatever important, we must learn the Inuit way—in stillness, by watching. This requires an adjustment, a sort of surrender for a guy who works in questions. His adopted son, Marvin, and I sit with our empty mugs and wait for hot water. Ice settles in the kettle. Snow curls like smoke through a gap in the canvas door. Three thousand years of patience fills the shadows around us and Jacob begins telling, in Inukititut, of his dream. He had not wanted to leave it. He was hunting caribou. They were so close.
Children run outside what I believe I was told is the fitness centre in #Ilulissat , #Greenland . In 2001, 'Atanarjuat' was the title of the first #film to be written, directed and acted entirely in the #Inuktitut language. It is a must-see, directed by Zacharias Kunuk and a great ensemble acting cast, including brilliant performance by Natar Ungalaaq. Another important #Inuit film made in 2016 is 'Angry Inuk' by filmmaker @alethea_aggiuq. If you're interested in Inuit culture and rights, these are each/both a good place to begin...
