Inuit Peoples - INST 1002

Credit(s): 3 | Hours: Lecture - 45, Lab - 0, Work Experience - , Other - 0

This course is the only post-secondary course offering in the Treaty 6 area that focuses exclusively on the history and present-day issues of Inuit Canadians. The topic of Inuit Canadians is often omitted in post-secondary programs, and this course brings forward this silenced population of at least 65,025 people. The history of Inuit Canadians is explored through the Eskimo Identification Canada system, the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement, Inuit traditional systems of naming, and the present-day issues of Inuit Canadians, and brings to light the complexities of southern-based urban Inuit life.
