This feature documentary tells the story of 2 Inuit communities of the circumpolar north--one on Canada's Baffin Island, the other in Northwest Greenland--that are linked by a migration led by an intrepid shaman. Navarana, an Inughuit elder and descendant of the shaman, draws inspiration and hope from the ties that still bind the 2 communities to face the consequences of rapid social and environmental change.

This slowly unfolding saga of an Eskimo woman's trip from Greenland to southern Baffin Island in search of her distant Inuit relatives and their traditional customs ... and how global climate change is affecting the subsistence lifestyle. Stunning cinematography. Language spoken throughout is Inuktitut with English subtitles.

Violence: Scenes of shooting of whales; and netting and killing of scores of sea birds. Butchering of game and eating of raw meat is shown several times all as part of the traditional subsistence way of life in the high Arctic.
