About the Author: Aiden Kunnizzi

My name is Aiden Gaaniinzhii (Kunnizzi), born and raised in Nihtat (Inuuvik, NT) of the Gwich’in Settlement Region, Treaty 11 Territory. I am Dinjii Zhuh & Inuvialuk. I am passionate about journalism in context to decolonization, cultural preservation, and rejuvenation of core values and principles of my Gwich’in & Inuvialuit heritage. My background in media involves knowledge and skills in photography, graphic design, filming, video editing, social media, and podcasting. I’m currently learning Dinjii Zhuh Ginjik (Gwich’in Language), in the Vuntut dialect (Old Crow, Yukon), with intentions of preserving the language which is currently endangered and at risk of being permanently extinct. I intend on using my learned skills of journalism and media to enrich the values of indigenous movements such as decolonization, and cultural preservation. Aiden is currently in a paid journalism internship under the Arctic Youth Network’s The Exchange alongside Editorial Director Karli Zschogner under the funding of Northern Journalism Training Initiative-Journalists for Human Rights.
