Towering icebergs, doomed expeditions in tall ships– this was the vast Arctic from tales of 18th century European explorers. That romance carries on today, even as the future carves out a radically altered land. Will the imaginations of foreigners paint the sole history of the Arctic? What are the memories of the 3 million Indigenous peoples who call this land their home?

Join Kiliii Yuyan on a voyage through the Arctic as lived by its Indigenous peoples. Rumors of Arctic Belonging is a project that combines several National Geographic stories under a single theme- that the Arctic is not an exotic locale, but rather a place called home. We’ll get a look behind-the-scenes of what it is like to work and live in the circumpolar Arctic on assignment.

Photographer Kiliii Yuyan illuminates stories of the Arctic and human communities connected to the land and sea. Informed by ancestry that is both Nanai/Hèzhé (East Asian Indigenous) and Chinese-American, he explores the human relationship to the natural world from different cultural perspectives and extreme environments, on land and underwater. Kiliii is an award-winning contributor to National Geographic, TIME, and other major publications.
