Qinuisaarniq

Qinuisaarniq

Qinuisaarniq (“resiliency”) is a program created to educate Nunavummiut about the history and impacts of residential schools, policies of assimilation, and other colonial acts that have affected the Canadian Arctic. Each resource has been carefully written and reviewed to include level-appropriate opportunities for students to learn about colonial acts and policies that have affected Inuit. These acts and policies created long-lasting impacts on Inuit individuals and communities, which are still being felt today.

We also have free, downloadable teaching guides to accompany each book.
