Voices of Inuit Women in Leadership and Governance

Inuit Leadership and Governance, Volume 1

This book gathers the reflections of twelve Inuit women who have taken the risk of leadership in Canada and beyond.

Whether an advocate, policy maker, or cultural leader, each woman tells the story of her journey toward becoming a voice for her fellow Inuit. Solid cultural values and a strong sense of service are their common denominators, even if their missions and personal convictions vary. Some are leaders in cultural development and environmentalism; others thrived as members of territorial legislatures. Some are advocates in their home communities; others took their passion for public issues to national and international arenas. In every case, these women are driven by a desire to see Inuit society flourish through its language, traditions, and institutions.
