Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportForskning


Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI) commissioned a study to better understand some of the underlying issues related to the decline of Inuktut use and the role of the formal education system. This research report unpacks the barriers which prohibit Inuit from enjoying their linguistic, economic, historical, cultural and human rights within Nunavut and Canada. The education system has been used to produce many of the negative social effects listed in this report. It is necessary that the education system be used to redress those effects. A strong program of bilingual education must be adopted.
