Part of the Death in the Ice Maritime Lecture Series, Amber Lincoln from the British Museum discusses the impact of Inuit observations and oral history in finding Franklin's lost ships and what this means for future Arctic resarch.

Drawing comparisons between how Europeans have used Inuit testimony in the past, such as in the search for the Franklin Expedition of 1845, this presentation explores the role of Inuit testimony, knowledge and authority in climate change research and public awareness campaigns.

It highlights the diverse perspectives and strategies Inuit use to control northern narratives of climate change.
