    ANGIRATTUT (COMING HOME)

    Amitturmiut is the companion website for Angirattut (Coming Home) to provide supporting documentation and all the extra footage not included in the film, to give viewers a more in-depth look.

    Angirattut is selected to screen at the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, October 16 in its original Inuktitut version with no English subtitling, to highlight both the importance of the Inuit language, and also how indigenous filmmaking honours, maintains and strengthens indigenous languages.

    Angirattut is a 90-minute film by award-winning Igloolik filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk, documenting Inuit knowledge, tradition and history during a restorative healing ceremony of Siugarjuk Inuit. After being relocated from their homeland 5 decades ago and dispersed throughout Nunavut, a group of elders return to Siugarjuk and embrace the restorative power of their homeland to heal personal loss. In doing so, they share their life history of an ancient way of life to help the next generation of Inuit meet the challenge of survival in the 21st century.

    The following list has some useful resources for genealogical research in Nunavut

    Networking Links
    More Information
    • Statistics Canada: If you want to access your personal data, you have to register with Statistics Canada first. It falls under the privacy & freedom of information act.
    • Census: You can access general census information here. Please note that you can access 1996, 2001 and 2006 census information on these links. Unfortunately, there’s no way to perform genealogy research on the Census website.
    • This is where you can do an Ancestor's Search, at Library and Archives Canada.
      Old censuses are kept with Library & Archives Canada (L&AC) up until 1922. Limited searches can be performed using the online databases and guides on the Library and Archives Canada website.
      This is a link to BackgroundCheck.org's geneology research guide.
    • Some information on Nunavut is available from the Census and NHS in the Focus on Geography series.
    • There is a process now which allows some aboriginals in Labrador to verify their aboriginal ancestry using census records. This is for people wishing to obtain status. You can consult Aboriginal and Northern Affairs here.
    • Vital Records can be searched online only through the following links, which are owned by Ancestry.com, formerly The Generations Network, which is a privately held Internet company based in Provo, Utah, United States. The largest for-profit genealogy company in the world, it operates a network of genealogical and historical record websites focused on the United States and nine foreign countries, develops and markets genealogical software, and offers a wide array of genealogical related services.
