Dale Sperry Mudge was a research associate at Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and her research focused on community cooperatives, especially among women. She and photographer Jim Burke from the University of Pittsburgh traveled to the Arctic in 2003 and 2004 to document the changes in traditional life that have occurred on the Belcher Islands over the last century. Mudge and Burke discovered that TV and the Internet, along with other forms of technology, are firmly established in the towns of the Far North. This contact with the rest of the world has been both beneficial and detrimental in various ways, but through it all, the native Inuit have maintained many of their historical practices..
