PSA: TUSAQTAVUT INTERVIEWS – Arctic Bay
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
DATE ISSUED: October 29, 2020
EVENT: TUSAQTAVUT INTERVIEWS – Arctic Bay
DATES: November 3 – 6, 2020
LOCATION: Community Hall, Arctic Bay
The Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) is hosting Tusaqtavut interviews with Inuit in Arctic Bay to gather traditional knowledge for a study. Similar interviews were already conducted in Clyde River, Pond Inlet, Igloolik and Sanirajak.
Tusaqtavut is an impacted communities’ regional study by Inuit. This Inuit-led study will use Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit to demonstrate the use of land and water for Inuit cultural activities and gather views on the impacts of the Mary River Project.
The study is being conducted because Inuit have expressed a need for more comprehensive studies than the ones led by Baffinland.
Inuit who take part in the interviews will be compensated. Due to COVID-19, interviews will be limited to small socially distanced groups.
