ᓇᓂᓯᓂᖅ - Nanisiniq: A Journey of Discovery

Acerca de

05 febrero 2015


Beginning in 2010 in Arviat Nunavut, the Nanisiniq Arviat History Project is a multi-media history project which brings together Inuit youth and Elders to re-discover Inuit history.

Follow Nanisiniq on our ‘journey of discovery’ as we uncover treasures from the past - travelling thousands of kilometres around the world, visiting four continents, co-documenting over 100 hours of video footage, examining countless archival documents, talking to over 50 Elders and re-thinking the importance of history. It’s your history- join us!
We are thankful for the organizations and individuals who have contributed to the Nanisiniq Arviat History Project. The Sivulinuut Elders Society, the University of British Columbia School of Social Work, Nunavut Arctic College, the Nunavut Research Institute and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada were the project’s primary partners.
