Instructional Module

A Module About Inuit and the Land For Junior Secondary Students

"I was thinking about place names and how we’re using them now and how we used to back then. Back then it was a means for survival to know our place names… I find it quite ironic now that we’re using place names as a means for survival for our language and our culture rather than it just being a matter of our (physical) survival."
- Inuit Heritage Trust, Place Names Workshop, 2002
