An Inuk point of view about the Deep impact that the Europeans have on Inuit lives - Sarah Angiyou
Cœur des sciences Pavilion (CO) - Agora Hydro-Québec (CO-R500)
Europeans have had and still have a deep impact on Inuit lives. Every part of their lives have been impacted by the colonisation: their language, their education, their family, their food, their dogs, etc. Some changes are irrevocable today, but some are not. This communication arise from a reflection after taking a course on Inuit Identity in the UQAT Teacher training program in Puvirnituq and Ivujivik. Through history facts, examples of lived past and present experiences, comparison of life modes, and suggestions of actions to consider for the future, the main goal of this presentation is to share an Inuk point of view and a reflection about the deep impact Europeans have on Inuit lives.
