Nunavik Cultural Landscape - Hilda Snowball & Marie-Pierre McDonald

Preserving the cultural landscapes is important, not only from a historical point of view, but also to prevent the loss of a natural and cultural heritage. Home-made traditional cabins are defining elements of the Nunavik cultural landscape. Their simple structure and appearance belies an enduring resiliency. In Nunavik, outside the political landscape of the urban areas, stands a humanized landscape where nature and cultural human activity express a long and intimate relationship between the Inuit and their natural environment. With the rapid expansion of the communities, how do we protect the living traditional landscape of Nunavik? Are planning tools and policies sufficient for preserving and managing Nunavik’s cultural landscapes?
