Film phase:Completed


The irrepressible Aaju Peter pursues a major goal: To create a permanent EU forum for Indigenous peoples. At the same, she delves into her own origins. When she was a child, she was sent away from her family in Greenland to Denmark, losing both her mother tongue and her indigenous culture. When she grew up, she fled to Arctic Canada, only to experience the colonization of the Inuit there too. Now, Peter fights for justice to create a better future for her grandchildren and future generations. 

Twice Colonized is a participant of Project: Hatched 2023.
