Product Overview

The Inuit have experienced colonization and the resulting disregard for the societal systems, beliefs and support structures foundational to Inuit culture for generations. While much research has articulated the impacts of colonization and recognized that Indigenous cultures and worldviews are central to the well-being of Indigenous peoples and communities, little work has been done to preserve Inuit culture. Unfortunately, most people have a very limited understanding of Inuit culture, and often apply only a few trappings of culture past practices, artifacts and catchwords to projects to justify cultural relevance.

Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit meaning all the extensive knowledge and experience passed from generation to generation is a collection of contributions by well- known and respected Inuit Elders. The book functions as a way of preserving important knowledge and tradition, contextualizing that knowledge within Canadas colonial legacy and providing an Inuit perspective on how we relate to each other, to other living beings and the environment.
