Natalie has worked with community members and organizations across Inuit Nunangat since 2016. Her work on the Arctic Corridors and Northern Voices Research for Policy on Shipping Governance in Arctic Canada, as well as the Kangut project, involved partnering with Inuit youth, Elders and adults in 15 communities to document Inuit knowledge using participatory mapping, discussions and on-the-land trips. The Arctic Corridors project received the 2021 Governor General’s Innovation Award.
