Learn Inuit Culture Online!

Our Inuit Cultural Online Resource, also known as ICOR, is undergoing some site development. It provides a central resource location for learning about Canadian Inuit culture and traditions. Its purpose is to offer a way of learning about what it means to be Inuit, including some basic vocabulary. Videos are available through this website.

Thinking Allyship?

With current events and rethinking our relationships with one another, explore the concept of Allyship with the help of these two documents. These two documents act as resources for non-Indigenous people seeking to become allies to Indigenous people to help in the understanding of the struggle for decolonization and nationhood and what effective allyship to Indigenous peoples means.
