Arviat project puts Inuit face on local history “We want to be there too”
May 20/2011 article by Sarah Rogers in the Nunatsiaq News:
OTTAWA — When Curtis Konek, 20, recalls the social studies courses he took at school, he remembers learning about Napoleon Bonaparte, a military leader during the French Revolution.
It’s not that the Arviat youth doesn’t appreciate history from other parts of the world — but where, he asks, is the history of the Inuit?
Konek isn’t alone in thinking his own history should have a bigger presence in Nunavut and throughout Canada.
“We want to be there too,” he said.
