Recordings of Elders – Traditional Knowledge and Oral History

In November of 2022, NBES traveled to Arviat to do an inventory and collect meeting transcripts and audio files from archival materials with the Elder Advisory Council. We conducted interviews with local elders who’ve been involved in the Elders Advisory Committee’s work at some point or another and, with Eric Anoee Jr, the Department of Education. All interviews were recorded, and we hope that we can continue to gather information regarding Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit. 

Thank you to the Government of Nunavut for your financial support of this project!
