THE RIGHT TO BE COLD

THE RIGHT TO BE COLD

Sunday 28 August 2016, 9:30am—10:30am

The Arctic ice is receding each year, but just as irreplaceable are the culture and the wisdom that have allowed the Inuit to thrive in the Far North for so long. And it's not just the Arctic: the whole world is changing in dangerous, unpredictable ways. Sheila Watt-Cloutier has devoted her life to protecting what is threatened and nurturing what has been wounded. Her book, The Right to Be Cold, explores the parallels between safeguarding the Arctic and the survival of Inuit culture.

The Arctic ice is receding each year, but just as irreplaceable are the culture and the wisdom that have allowed the Inuit to thrive in the Far North for so long. And it's not just the Arctic: the whole world is changing in dangerous, unpredictable ways. Sheila Watt-Cloutier has devoted her life to protecting what is threatened and nurturing what has been wounded. Her book, The Right to Be Cold, explores the parallels between safeguarding the Arctic and the survival of Inuit culture. She talks with Sacha McMeeking, head of Māori Studies at Canterbury University, about her culture and the Arctic, and what can be done to save both.
