The experience of grief in Inuit communities is often inseparable from the traumatic events in which the death may have occurred. Recent testimony provided to members of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls confirms that this the experience of traumatic grief is far-reaching and enduring. In this presentation, we will discuss support systems offered to family members and survivors who had offered their testimony, the after care provided by the commission, and strategies to develop ongoing grief supports in Inuit communities.
