As difficult as it may be for contemporary Inuit to face past injustice or prejudice, educators in the North are welcoming the opportunity Unikkausivut will allow to do that and much more. Cathy McGregor, who has taken part in Arctic education for 38 years, is anticipating these films as eye-opening experiences for students. “They don’t know how their grandparents lived; they


have no idea because they don’t live that life,” she says, pointing to the example of hunting by posing as a seal on the ice. “There’s all kinds of very important values and lessons in those films, beyond the specifics of what they’re seeing.” McGregor now serves as Executive Director of Curriculum

& School Services for the Government of Nunavut Department of Education, which has become a partner in Unikkausivut. She can envision teachers extracting lessons about how Inuit traditionally solved critical problems of survival with ingenious use of available resources. In a harsh, unforgiving setting, she explains, these people were forced to adopt principles of sustainability that the rest of the world is only beginning to consider. “Young people can understand that what is core to that


old way of life actually gives Inuit an advantage for the future,” she explains. “Because they have lived a sustainable lifestyle, maybe they can teach people in the rest of the world how to be more sustainable in their lifestyle.”
