NANISINIQ ARVIAT HISTORY PROJECT

2010 – 2013
Youth Participatory Action Research

From 2010-2013, the Nanisiniq Arviat History Project was a multiple-media, youth participatory action research project which brought together Inuit youth and Elders to re-discover Inuit history.

Nanisinq was a SSHRC-funded initiative with the University of British Columbia’s School of Social Work and inspired the Nanivara project with Gjoa Haven and Naujaat in 2014.

Notable Quotes:

“These students have come away with skills they’ll be able to apply in their education and careers, from film-making to translation between Inuktitut and English. We’ve had interest from other communities wanting to know how they can do a project like this. It’s a replicable model.”

-Jamie Bell, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada web site, June 2013
