KABLOONAS

Kabloonas is the way in which the Inuit who live in the north part of Canada call those who haven´t their same ascendency.

The first time i read this word was in the book "Fatal Passage" by Ken McGoogan, when, as the result of the conversations between John Rae and some inuit, and trying to find any evidence of the ill-fated Sir John Franklin Expedition, some of then mentioned that they watched how some kabloonas walked to die in the proximities of the river Great Fish.

I wish to publish this blog to order and share all those anecdotes that I´ve been finding in the arctic literature about arctic expeditions. My interest began more than 15 years ago reading a little book of my brother about north and south pole expeditions. I began reading almost all the bibliography about Antarctic expeditions and the superknown expeditions of Scott, Amundsen, Shackleton, etc. After I was captured by the Nansen, Nobile and Engineer Andree. But the most disturbing thing in that little book, full of pictures, was the two pages dedicated to the last Franklin expedition of the S.XIX, on that moment I thought that given the time on which this and others expeditions happened, few or any additional information could be obtained about it. I couldn´t imagine that after those two pages It would be a huge iceberg full of stories, unresolved misteries, anecdotes, etc. I believe that this iceberg, on the contrary than others, would continue growing instead melting.



MOVIES, DOCUMENTARIES, LECTURES AND PLAYS

In this page I am trying to gather all available documentaries and films available in the Internet about Arctic expeditions and related but unfortunately, the links appear and disappear with a higher frequency than I check the contents of my page. So sorry if some of this links aren´t working anymore.

LA SONRISA DEL SOL

Un original documental que transporta a un grupo de Inuit Groenlandeses a vivir inolvidables experiencias en un clima tan distinto al suyo como lo es el de las islas Canarias. No os dejará indiferentes, os lo aseguro. Todo el documental lo es pero el final es especialmente entrañable.
