Inuuqatigiit, The Curriculum from the Inuit Perspective
“Inuuqatigiit is being used across the territories. It has created an educational link between the past and the present; a link that has been lost in some places in the north. It has helped reinforce the Inuit identity of children and future generations. It will also create a new path in the school system where communities will play a more visible role in their children’s education.
Inuuqatigiit was being developed primarily for Inuit children, however, as the curriculum grew we found that it had something for people of many different backgrounds. We want to celebrate the similarities of all people, rather than differences. We want to find these similarities by sharing our emotions and talking about what is important to each of us and by listening to others.”
