Dora Ohaituk

Dora Ohaituk was part of the eight-member team of young filmmakers behind Inuuvunga: I Am Inuk, I Am Alive, a participatory media initiative undertaken by the NFB in 2004. Mentored by professionals from Montreal’s EyeSteelFilm, the young participants/observers documented their last year of high school, detailing everyday life and addressing a broad range of issues confronting their community, including youth suicide and cultural upheaval. In a tragic turn of events, Ohaituk herself would later take her own life. Also on the team: Bobby Echalook, Sarah Idlout, Laura Iqaluk, Willia Ningeok, Linus Kasudluak, Rita-Lucy Ohaituk and Caroline Ningiuk.
