When reporting on climate change in the Arctic, the media frequently neglects to highlight Indigenous voices in the region. KNBA's Kashona Notah interviewed grantees Jenna Kunze and Alice Qannik Glenn about their Pulitzer Center-supported project “Alaska Natives on the Frontline” and how their work sought to place these underreported narratives front and center. Alaska is warming at twice the average global rate and Utqiaġvik, Glenn’s hometown, has been termed “ground zero for climate change” by its mayor. Combining written, audio, and visual elements, the project documents Alaskan Natives’ resiliency when confronted with this rapidly changing landscape.
