Qaujisaut Elder Cultural Language M00662-020 _2002
Program name: Qaujisaut
Qaujisaut (To See, To Find Out) was a program directed mainly 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.
