Aaju Peter is a force of nature: a renowned Inuk lawyer, defender of Indigenous rights in the Arctic, and fierce protector of her ancestral lands.
After the unexpected death of her youngest son, Peter begins the journey to bring her colonizers in Canada and Denmark to justice.
Twice Colonized follows her life over of seven years, through her efforts to establish an Indigenous forum at the European Union, and the deeply personal journey to heal her own wounds.
In this powerful documentary, director Lin Alluna journeys alongside Peter as she transforms her painful experiences into inspiration for others in the struggle against the poisonous effects of colonization.
