Secrets from the Ice

"Secrets from the Ice"

Friday, Feb. 9 at 12 noon, Yukon Arts Centre, Whitehorse.

This documentary was produced for CBC’s The Nature of Things. It tells the story of how, over the last 20 years, Canada and other Arctic countries have become the frontier of a new science related to climate change. Ice patches are melting faster than ever and are revealing ancient human artifacts, wildlife and human remains, telling us more than we’ve ever known about human history in the sub-Arctic and at altitude in the mountains.

Director Andrew Gregg and many people who appear in the film, ice-patch archaeologists and members of the Kluane, Carcross Tagish and Champagne and Aishihik First Nations will be in attendance.
