Introduction

Interviewing Inuit Elders, Volume 1

The Interviewing Inuit Elders series grew out of the Oral Traditions course, held at the Iqaluit campus of Nunavut Arctic College in 1996. The college invited Inuit elders to be interviewed, in Inuktitut, by the eight students taking the course that year. The interviews began across a table, but just weeks into what is now an ongoing project, the stories and songs you will find captured here were being told over a cup of tea to students and course facilitators sitting on the floor, as they might have been centuries ago.
