This project of inuuja is a great teaching tool for a workshop that involves our culture and to show the last three generations of the life we have lived and how it has changed, when there was little wood and metal available in inuit settlements, when most of the inuit still lived in sod houses and when only a few house where made.

This project of inujja is a great way to teach our youth and children.

All the inujja are made in different clothing that where tough by our mothers, to teach us how to measure and make the clothing, that has been passed on by our antcoistors and we use them for our clothing, this was the way they would teach the girls to know knowledge and survive in their environment, learning how to sew and make clothing and what were their responsibilities.

Inujjaa (inuit traditional dolls) that is made with small pieces of wood, bones and traditional clothing are the original inujjaa we would use, also the fur, bones and rock were the only one available for their toys.  The one who is making the original inujjaa is measuring the clothing that her mother had tought her.  This show a great way to learn and teach our culture. That is why I have decided to make the project of Inujjaa.

It was hard to get a new inujja because there was hardly any wood , when my father was making sled ( kamutti ) their would be small peaces and the wood was so breakable, my father made me one after he made the sled .

Qimuksik (Dog Team) is one of the 13-part Nunavut (Our Land) series follows five fictional families through the different seasons of an Arctic year, from the glorious northern spring to a uniquely Inuit Christmas Day. Other programs include contemporary documentaries on whale and polar bear hunting, modern leadership, elders’ advice, and a youth group’s effort to learn circus skills to reduce youth suicide.

Igloolik, Spring 1945. In Qimuksik (Dog Team) while imparting knowledge to the next generation, one family travels in the immense and beautiful arctic during spring.

Inuaraq teaches his young son how to survive in the old way: driving the dogs, building the igloo, catching seals on the open water, running down caribou to feed the family.                scroll for more info...

Content summary:

  • Dad teaching his son about survival: navigation, ice thickness
  • Dad being a role model
  • Tracking caribou by examining hoof prints and using the raven’s flight direction and sound
  • Skinning a caribou – special way to do this for clothing (instead of random use)
  • Relationship with the dogs: man and dogs have a very special connection: they work together and one cannot live without the other. The man feeds the dogs and working with dogs has many benefits (unlike a skidoo, dogs don’t run out of gas!). Dogs are useful for polar bear hunting. The dogs know where there is thin ice, know how to avoid danger while travelling. The dogs can find their way home, even during a white-out or blizzard. Jayson Kunnuk
