Greenland Bound: A Paddler’s Pilgrimage

The sport of kayaking has its roots in the skills that Inuit people needed to hunt and survive in Arctic waters. In 2014, Canadians James Roberts and James Manke went to learn more about the Greenlandic people and Qajaq culture, and to participate in the legendary Greenland National Qajaq Championships. In this short film, they share their experiences with the games and with the people whose ancestors kayaked for survival, and who continue this competition to preserve those traditional skills.
