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.
