Photo: honouring historic Inuit whalers

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Students from the Nunavut Sivuniksavut program in Ottawa came out to the Library and Archives Canada building on Wellington St. in Ottawa Sept. 28 to help launch a new website dedicated to preserving the historic record of Inuit who participated in the Arctic whaling industry in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The website — www.inuitwhalers.ca — was produced with the help of a long list of funding contributors, including the federal and territorial governments, the Inuit Broadcasting Corp., Laval University, and l’Association des francophones du Nunavut.
