    Hi
    I am from Greenland, Master in Sâmi Journalism from an Indigenous Perspective.
    I made a film/tv documentary as part of my masters thesis. After education in Indigenous issues, I realized I used Inuit method to make film. To
    follow Inuk hunter and fisher, I adapted to the boathings, and made interviews on Greenlandic and my own knowledge about our way of living. The film is on Greenlandic with english subtitles. I screened it World Science Conference in Lausanne, 20019.
    The focus of my master’s thesis is the statistical analysis of gender differences in
    education and migration in Greenland. A television documentary: “In the wake of
    modern life, women are becoming leaders” covers a real story about contemporary
    issues in Greenland and the ways one is able to have a career and earn a living. I have
    documented the gender gap between men and women in education and the impact their
    choices have upon their careers.
    I also documented that there is a migration of women out of Greenland. Still the most
    important demographic changes taking place in Greenland for example Danish
    population is decreasing besides that the employees high ranking officials from
    Denmark are replaced by well-educated Greenlandic women in workplaces. In the
    “traditional” Greenlandic media coverage of such events, reporters have most often
    used stock video or film from previous reports with regards to the actual “on site”
    documentation when making stories about the hunters and fishermen and their wives.
    In contrast to this, I followed their work by accompanying them specifically at sea. In
    doing so, I showed how they managed to work along the coast. Interviewees from
    Ilulissat I interviewed at their homes.
    It has been important to me to document for the television viewers, the major
    differences between men and women in education and career choices. I have tried to
    present a fair and honest documentary regarding this gender difference. In this issue we
    should not only see the facts, numbers, and statistics, but find stories and the reality to
    show that the hunters and fishers, and their wives, are deeply proud of what they are
    doing, despite society requiring Greenlanders to be educated. I follow two hunters and
    fishers, their wives and a BA level graduate from University of Greenland,
    documenting their daily life in 2018 stories in Greenland. I have documented seal
    hunting that is very important, especially the first seal catch, a boys first catch, a
    practice we have inherited from our ancestors.
    . Hunters and fishers are using methods from our ancestors.
