Inuit Go For It

Published: March 13, 2012, Author: JayTaber

The Inuit of Nunavut and Greenland are one people, so why not use broadcast communications that surmount the artificial boundaries imposed on Inuit territory? As the Nunavut Inuit explore developing Inuit TV, those boundaries may someday seem less important than the culture underlying them.

Like the Saami of northern Norway and Sweden, their language and cultural retention in a forbidding climate has kept the indigenous bonds strong. In the 21st century minerals and mining frenzy, those bonds are what gives them a chance to protect what is theirs.

Chief George Manuel Memorial Indigenous Library

The library is dedicated to the memory of Secwepemc Chief George Manuel (1921-1989), to the nations of the Fourth World and to the elders and generations to come.
