Program: Qaujisaut (To See, To Find Out): This program was mainly directed toward Inuit youth, facing hard choices - caught between two cultures. It is entertaining, fast and fun. Up and coming young musical talent was promoted on Qaujisaut. Qaujisaut taught young people important life skills as well as touching on timely health issues and covering stories important to youth. Qaujisaut was interactive – some had contest segments and a write-in/email segment. Qaujisaut was a half-hour program for the 13 to 15 year old age group. Qaujisaut was produced in Iqaluit with segments also being provided by our other centres.

Segment 1: Qiqitarni Inuit sponsors a youth science camp outside Iqaluit where participants learn hunting skills from experienced hunters. The idea of the camp is to make Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (Inuit traditional knowledge) and science to work together. Some of this is in English.
