Children of the Arctic is a portrait of five Native Alaskan teenagers coming of age in Barrow, Alaska - the northern-most community of the United States. As they embark on their journey into adulthood, they strive to be both modern American kids and the inheritors of an ancient whaling culture. For the Iñupiat teenagers of Barrow growing up has become more complicated than it was for their ancestors who named this place “Ukpiagvik” (“a place to hunt snowy owls”). They are the descendants of a culture that has endured for more than a millennium on this isolated, but now rapidly changing tundra.
