The Kitikmeot Heritage Society prides itself on doing good research. We accomplish this by engaging cultural programs as a platform for learning and documenting traditional Inuinnait language and skills. Our staff has a combination of academic and traditional training that allows for us to record knowledge in ways that are both useful to academics and community members. We also maintain partnerships with researchers from universities and other institutions that help to bridge the distance between local concerns and knowledge and the worlds of southern science and research. The publications found below are some of the resources to result from our collaborations with various researchers and research programs.
