Northern light legends, Kugluktuk

This is a guest post from Michael Ericsson. Thank you and welcome. This amazing piece called “Northern Light Legends” is just stunning. As this post goes live I am prepping to spend 5 days in the Snowy Mountains in Australia, so I’ll have equally chilled footage to show. Enjoy!

For two weeks this past April, two friends and I headed far north to a small community in Canada’s Arctic, Kugluktuk, Nunavut, with the purpose of documenting the northern lights. We spent a few days in town with a local elder, Alice Ayalik, who has has been viewing the aurora her whole life and shared with us stories passed down by her parents and ancestors. Afterwards, we snowmobiled south of town to Bloody Falls and spent ten days camping out on the tundra and capturing the northern lights where these very stories originated.
