Increasing development and changes in climate make this an eventful period in Arctic history. The Corporation is producing a video that includes interviews with Olgoonik Iñupiat leaders, employees, and Wainwright shareholders as all seek to balance the need for local economic growth with the protection of natural resources and subsistence traditions. Due out in spring, the video reflects the common ground between Wainwright and its village corporation.
Thank you to our shareholders in Wainwright for the welcoming spirit and hospitality shown to the video crew that visited the community to record interviews and footage of the village. An additional thank you to Ward Nashoalook for his efforts in helping with this project.
