CIRES Special Lecture :: Arctic Seasons: An Inuit Perspective

Come meet our Inuit guests from Nunavut, Canada

Join us to hear special guests Ilkoo Angutikjuak, Joelie Sanguya, Igah Sanguya, Rosemary Sanguya, Esa Qillaq, and Raygee Palituq, from Kangiqtugaapik (Clyde River) Nunavut discuss the Arctic from their perspective as Inuit who's families have lived off the land and sea ice for generations.

Learn about Inuit knowledge and use of the Arctic through various seasons, and how local tools, clothing, food, and transport are continually adapting to a changing Arctic.

The presentation will follow the Inuit seasonal calendar, highlighting the Inuktitut language and how it is used to communicate critical knowledge about the environment.

Our special guests are visiting CU as part of an NSF-funded project with CIRES researcher Shari Gearheard, who lives full time in Kangiqtugaapik.
