"Two Hands Outstretched”: Enduring in the Longue Durée and the Entangled Ecologies of Three Thousand

Sun, Nov 11, 11:00am to 12:15pm, Hilton Atlanta, 4, 406


This paper examines Inuk artist Assinajaq’s film Three Thousand as an articulation of both the indigenous longue durée and a world of entangled ecologies. Combining archival film footage with original animation, voiceover, and music by Inuk throat-singer Tanya Tagaq, the film insists upon the fluid commingling of times: the ancestors will have been in the future, two hands stretch out in either direction, traditional stories offer lessons for future generations. Ultimately, I argue that more livable arctic futures are ones in which tangles of dependency and care––times, peoples, lands, and animals––are centered through radical forms of indigenous resurgence.
