A didactic film informing the climate state of emergency crisis, The Willow Project, BIA -Bureau of Indian Affairs and the health issues of the Inupiat indigenous community in the Arctic circle leading the fight by young indigenous women. The film takes a poetic creative approach to illustrate the complexity, pain, and struggle of Siqiniq.
Siqiniq, an Inupiaq Indigenous woman, crosses the treacherous winter tundra. This hike through the tundra provides the symbolic backdrop of her struggles as a modern-day warrior fighting corporate greed.
Some of the unique obstacles she has to navigate is being considered an Urban or City Native. They did not grow up on their traditional lands but are strongly connected to their culture and all it provides. Growing up with a mother that lives in their village and a white father from New Jersey, she also finds herself at the crossroads of ancient traditions and the modern world. The film allows us to witness the multiple layers of both internal and external conflicts, including generational trauma, addiction, and loss, that have made her a complex, unique, and unforgettable warrior.
