The group of four Inuit youth researchers and an elder are in Ottawa to discover and retell the history of the Eastern Arctic from the Inuit perspective, including the truth of what happened to Inuit when forced from their traditional way of life to modern western styled communities.
The researchers — Amy Owingayak, Curtis Konek, Jordan Konek and Patrick Pingashat — are part of the Nanisiniq (journey of discovery) Arviat History Project being co-ordinated by Dr. Frank Tester of the University of British Columbia.
