Welcome to Arctic Stories!

This site highlights interviews of native Arctic people, scientists, and people who live and work in the Arctic, focusing on the region around Utqiaġvik, Alaska.  The videos were produced by Peter Lourie as part of National Science Foundation research projects funded to Paul Shepson and collaborators, starting in 2004.  The intent of the videos is to convey the nature of life in the Arctic, the relationships between the natural environment and people who live and work there, and the impact of climate change on that environment and the people and animals who call the Arctic their home.  The site features videos about science, people, sea ice, and Arctic wildlife, and includes videos of people filmed from 2009 to 2024. Enjoy!
